PORT ANGELES — Hamilton Elementary first-grade teachers Michelle Weber, Sara Hochberger and Lisa McCoy assign their students a family homework project each fall around the Halloween season.
“I started doing this quite a few years ago,” Weber explained, “and my teaching partners have come aboard and are doing it too.”
Families this year were asked to decorate a real or fake pumpkin as one of their favorite book characters.
“The sky is the limit, but we only ask that they do not carve the pumpkins,” she said.
The pumpkins were exhibited in the library at the school at 1822 W. Seventh St., Port Angeles for a couple of weeks prior to Halloween.
