Second-grade students at Southern Local Elementary recently completed a pumpkin project and book report. Students read books and designed pumpkins to resemble the book or a character from the story. Pictured (front, from left) are Hailey Maines (How the Grinch Stole Christmas), Hope Cronin (Posie the Kitten in Pink), Drew Winters (There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Bat), and Nevaeh Soukup (Frozen: Across the Sea); and (back) Johnathan Ketchum (Super Sharks), Alyssa Rodgers (Scaredy-Cat, Splat!), Aubree Pucci (The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything), Walker Tice (Three Little Pigs), and Cassiel Spann (Doc McStuffins Starry, Starry Night).
