Students in the kindergarten, first grade and second grade at Western Academy Charter School recently took part in an exciting fall pumpkin project in their reading classes. Each student chose a book and then created a character out of the book from a pumpkin. This family-fun school project was an opportunity for the parents to enjoy creating and learning with their children. Students were able to be as creative as they wanted with this assignment, and used whatever supplies they felt would best display their character. The students also had to write about the book for a class presentation.
