Students carve and decorate pumpkins with their advisories for the Halloween pumpkin carving contest Oct. 31. The students and advisors decide on a creative idea and compete to win the annual pumpkin carving contest. Most advisories plan beforehand to win the contest.

The first place winners of M&A and Donnelly were announced at the end of the day. The M&A winner was English teacher Kate Absher’s advisory, and the Donnelly winner were math teachers Vickie Albritton and Kim Sirridge’s advisory. 

Science teacher Renee Blake’s advisory won third place in Donnelly. Blake’s advisory has never won the annual pumpkin carving contest.

“We have the best advisory in the school and that is reflected because we have the best pumpkins,” senior Bridget Graham said.

Students of advisories who won got a dress down day Nov. 2, free pizza for one advisory party and star cookies.
