á Who knew pumpkins could have so much personality?á á
á
The imaginative students, teachers, and staff at Cove Creek School, that's who. The school's Great Pumpkin Contest resulted in these fantastic creations, each based on a literary character. áPeople can vote for the greatest pumpkin by putting money in a can with the name of the pumpkin's character. The funds raised will help pay for the school's annual Veteran's Day celebration and the winning team will be treated to ice cream. áThe combination of art, literature, team building, and honoring veterans make a great learning project from a seasonal fruit, an impressive achievement and a fun experience for the whole school.á
