Combining the joy of reading and the fun of Halloween resulted in a creative project for Nativity Catholic School’s fifth-graders, who were asked by their teacher Katie Jones to decorate pumpkins based on popular literary characters. Harry Potter, the Cat in the Hat, the Rainbow Fish and Snoopy were a few of the creations.
Hunter Burge created a Frankenstein pumpkin; Aidan Leffer’s Rainbow Fish pumpkin was inspired by the book of the same name by Marcus Pfister.
The youngest pupils at Nativity went trick-or-treating throughout the school’s classrooms while participating in a costume parade. The children are (above) first-graders Becca Engel, Taylor Gregg, Danny Kappes, Shane Gregg and Jacob Morris. Edrien Sobrino (at right) and Matthew Mendez are kindergartners. SUBMITTED PHOTOs
