Goal: To foster a genuine love of reading and get kids talking about favorite books!
CREATE A BOOK CHARACTER ON A PUMPKIN OR GOURD
Grab a Sharpie, paint, accessories, and activate your imagination!
An individual or family project for home. Turn in pumpkins Oct. 18th - 25th to tables in the hall by the office. The earlier the better, so the kids can enjoy them longer. Attach a card with name, teacher name, and character/book title on back of the pumpkin.
Pumpkins will be judged on Monday, October 25th by Riverview staff. Any pumpkin turned in after the 25th will not be a part of the judging. Pumpkins to go home no later than Oct. 29th.
PRIZES: TOP TWO winners selected will be "Parade Marshals" leading the Halloween Parade.
