What is Boo at the Bend? Boo at the Bend is a community event where Cherokee Bend students and families can showcase their creativity.
Is this a fundraiser? No
Does the PTO/school provide the pumpkins for students or families? No
Where and when do we drop our pumpkins? You can deliver your pumpkin entries Thursday, October 28th during carpool. We will have a group of people receiving pumpkins at the Left-Hand Side Bike Rack. You may pull up after dropping off your child or personally deliver your pumpkin to this location by 8 am Thursday morning.
Are there any specific guidelines for decorating pumpkins? No. Be creative! You can carve, paint, or decorate your pumpkin any way that feels fun and festive to your family.
How many pumpkins can each family enter? You may enter one pumpkin per child or one as a family unit.
Will there be an opportunity for my child's class to enter a pumpkin? Yes, there is an optional classroom component to the competition. These pumpkins will be managed by the teachers and judged separately from the community entries.
Who will be judging? We will have a committee of 3 Cherokee Bend faculty members who will serve as our Boo at the Bend judges.
When can the community view the pumpkin patch? The patch will be open for socially distant viewing after school Friday through the weekend. The pumpkin patch will be located on the Cherokee Bend field. Please observe the safety protocol when visiting the patch.
How will winners be announced? Mrs. Ritchey will announce the winners to the school on Friday, October 29th. If your child/family won an award, you will receive an email notification from the Chief PTO. Winning pumpkins will be labeled in the patch for the community to view throughout the weekend.

Food Drive (May the Best Team Win!)
Starting today, Tuesday, October 12 until Friday, October 22 we will be collecting goods for the Central Alabama Food Bank in the school lobby.
The Community Food Bank distributes millions of meals across central Alabama each year.
"Our mission is to feed people in need today and foster collaborative solutions to end hunger tomorrow. We believe no one in Alabama should go hungry. For every person who is currently in need, there are even more people in Alabama willing and able to reach out with a helping hand."
Bins will be set up according to different SEC schools in which you or your student can drop off donations to show your allegiance. The school with the most canned goods on October 22 will receive bragging rights! Donate today!
Give 180 to the Mountain Brook City Schools Foundation
The Mountain Brook City Schools Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) created in 1992 by forward-thinking citizens to bridge the gap between what state funding provides and what makes Mountain Brook schools excellent. Through an annual granting process, the Foundation's dollars help every student and every teacher at every Mountain Brook school.
Please give $180, which is $1 for every day your child is learning through Mountain Brook Schools. A tax-deductible donation is an investment in your child's education.
To donate, please visit www.MBGives.org or mail a check to 32 Vine Street, 35213.
