The votes are in: it's Hillary!
Students in Christy Ferri's grade 3 class sound like they're listening to mom and dad at home: "I don't like any of them!," "I'm not going to vote at all!" and "I'll never vote for her!"

By the end of the day, the school-wide tally of 239 student votes was released:
Hillary Clinton: 133 votes - 55.7%
Donald Trump: 94 votes - 39.3%

Students' imaginations go wild in pumpkin decorating contest
The judging was done today - a difficult process to say the very least! They are Tyler Bareth in kindergarten for Wild Thing and Joceline Soto of fifth grade for Edward Tulane. Among staff, there was a tie between Tacky the Penguin (Sue Zeglen and Debbie LaFleche) and The Lorax (Elizabeth O’Neill).
Some of them wore glasses and a fireman's hat.
Some had spikes sticking out of them.
Others looked like a fish, a dog, a spooky cat or a rabbit.
One had a North Pole toy factory on top.
They come in every color imaginable - black, green, blue, yellow and the standard - orange.
These were just a few of the more than 50 entries in the Character Pumpkin Decorating Contest - in which students and staff let their imaginations run wild with the fruit of the season, pumpkins. [Read MORE]

Today, they showed off their research.
