The Cheyenne-Eagle Butte Upper Elementary School Parent Involvement Program hosted “Pumpkin Painting Night” for C-EB grades 2 through 3. The event, held on Monday evening, October 23, had a great turn out.
Two hundred students, along with their families, participated in painting pumpkins. Each pumpkin was unique and the designs reflected the wonderful imaginations of each student.
“It was fun! I liked all the different colors of paint. I used my favorite colors,” said Dexter Hawk Eagle, a fourth grader.
“I liked painting my pumpkin. I like my little brother’s pumpkin better,” said a smiling Brae’Anna One Wolf. One Wolf is in the fifth grade.
The parent Involvement committee had 279 pumpkins available for painting and by the end of the night, only a few remained.
“It was a great turn-out! We had 200 students sign in with their families,” said Lori Martin, Administrative Assistant.
Parent Involvement Coordinator, Connie Knight, organized this year’s pumpkin painting event.
