ASB will be holding their annual pumpkin drop at our next Coyote Community Assembly on Thursday, October 25th.  ASB will be providing pumpkins to each advisory class.  The goal is to not have your pumpkin explode when it hits the ground.    PLEASE do not use anything liquid inside your pumpkin! You can do slime, shaving cream, or even Jello but PLEASE NO LIQUIDS!    We will also be wearing pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Wear whatever pink you have that day!

Thank you!
