Pumpkin Fun

Nothing says “Fall” better than pumpkins…so the Houses had a pumpkin carving contest during their most recent House meeting.  Each House had 4 pumpkins to carve and/or decorate any way they would like.

Ahhh…the joys of cleaning out the insides…and sorting for seeds.

House Audacia, posing with their pumpkins, seemed to go with a CCS school and House spirit theme, with swords, shields, and even the word “roar.”

The pumpkins for House Fides were more varied – not so much following a theme but rather reflecting the creativity and interest of the group carving the pumpkin.

And House Sapientia went with a theme of House spirit by highlighting their mascot – the owl.
