It's Pumpkin Face Time!

Get your creative juices flowing and enter our annual Pumpkin Face Contest! With parental permission, students are invited to paint, decorate, or carve a pumpkin to be displayed and judged on Friday, October 26th in the gym. Choose from the following categories: animals, scariest, food, most creative, and cartoon/animation.


  1. Entry forms must be returned by Tuesday, October 23rd.
  2. All pumpkins must be brought to the gym on Friday, October 26th (safeties will        be there to help).
  3. You may only carve pumpkins with parental permission.
  4. You may NOT use candles or plug anything in.
  5. Pumpkins need to be picked up after 2:00 PM on the day of the contest or                  students may carry them home.

Family members with clearances are invited to view and vote between 8:30 and 11:30 AM. Be sure to sign in with Mrs. Gilbert in the front office before heading to the gym! Donations will be accepted and all money raised will benefit the Suzanne Blesi Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Good luck and may the best pumpkins win!

Halloween Candy Grams

Over the next few weeks, SMS Student Council will be selling Halloween Candy Grams for $1.00 each. Students may purchase the candy grams at lunch where they can also write a spooky message to their friends and/or teachers. All candy grams will be distributed on Halloween. Please contact Mr. Conard with any questions at [email protected]. Thanks for supporting Student Council!

Box Tops Contest

Our first Box Tops Contest will run from September 19th - October 31st! Collecting Box Tops is a fun and easy way to raise money for our school. For every Box Top we collect, our school earns 10 cents. Last year, our school earned over $1,750. With your support, we hope to exceed that number this year!

Get your friends and family involved! Collect as many Box Tops as you can and place them on a collection sheet or in a zip lock bag and return them to school. Be sure to include your child's name and grade so they get credit for the Box Tops. The classroom with the most Box Tops wins a PIZZA PARTY!
