Pumpkin Character Museum

It's time for our annual Pumpkin Book Character Museum in the MTE Library! All students in grades K-5 are invited to participate.

The rules are simple:

1. Pick a favorite book character. Look at the examples on this page for ideas:

2. Decorate a pumpkin to look like that character. You may use a real pumpkin or a craft pumpkin. If it's real, the pumpkin may not be cut, punctured, or carved in any way. You may use materials such as: paint, googly eyes, yarn, felt, feathers, construction paper, pipe cleaners, fabric, buttons, pompoms, wigs, props (glasses, jewelry, crowns, etc.) Do not use any food items to decorate your pumpkin.

3. Fold a piece of cardstock in half so that it stands up and write: · Your name · Your teacher's name · The name of the book character · The title of the book · The author of the book Bring your pumpkin book character and written description to the MTE Library any time during the week of October 23, and we will display it for all to enjoy. All pumpkin book characters will be sent home on Friday, November 3.

Please contact Mrs. Rumschlag, Library Media Specialist, at or Miss Benson, Kindergarten Teacher, at with any questions.

Box Tops for Education

Do you know that Mohawk Trails Elementary gets $.10 for every single box top that we send in to the General Mills?  There are two box tops collection periods - one in the fall and one in the spring.  Ask your neighbors, grandparents, etc. to help us collect and make the most money that we can.  Our goal is to make (at least) $2500 each year on Box Tops.
