Pumpkin Book Character Decorating Contest

I'm trying something new this October, Pumpkin Book Character Decorating Contest.  I got the idea from one of the other elementary librarians in the district.  PTO is asking parents to donate one pumpkin per homeroom.

Since this year teachers do not come to the library with their students it's been hard to communicate with them what's happening in the library and get their support.  I've tried emailing but then I'm told that I send to many emails.  I've tried word of mouth but someone always gets left out.  So I decided to make a simple Canva and email it and post it in the faculty bathrooms and over the copiers.  I'm hoping this will reach everyone.

How do you inform your busy teachers?


  1. To me, it is really sad that libraries are not used the way they were once were. Could you inform teachers at a faculty meeting? Does your school do morning announcements where the information can be read for several days?

  2. the struggle is real. keep on trying new things.
