Today I had the delightful pleasure of visiting with the great teachers at Hedgesville Elementary in West Virginia. One of the first things I noticed as I walked into their lovely school was the student work filled halls. Student writing, artwork, and projects are lovingly posted everywhere and it creates such a positive feeling about learning! To celebrate the Halloween season and to raise funds for charity, they are having a pumpkin contest. The pumpkins are decorated as favorite book characters and the students/parents are voting for their top picks with pennies. Awesome cause! Fabulous way to build school spirit! Way to go, Hedgesville!
