Centre Avenue’s Reading Action Committee was extremely excited about the school’s first Literary Character Pumpkin Patch Contest, where sixth-grade students and teachers had the opportunity to compete for the best decorated pumpkin at the school. The task was to transform the pumpkin into their favorite fictional literary character. Pumpkins were put on display for three days for the entire school to view the creative works and vote for their favorite pumpkin.

The student and teacher favorites were announced on Halloween and all students were recognized for their amazing work. The contest winners included Erin Lynch, Hudson Arnold, Jacob Eckstein, Jenella Poorajah, Gabriella Schaefer, Camila Lemus and Mrs. Grace.
