October’s almost over & you haven’t gotten down to the library after school to do the FREE, creepy photo with your friends! We’ve got creepy props & frames! Come on down after school. Also, Oct 31 is the last day to enter your photo for the “Look Like the Book” contest. We’ve got some great books for you to try to “look like” by yourself or with your friends. Come on down, check one out & dress up like the book cover. Remember, it’s a contest & CONTEST = PRIZES! Everyone wins something & YOU may be the 1st place winner!
Finally, do you wonder how the scars and the wounds and the bruises on monsters in the movies look so real? Want your own bruises, wounds and scars JUST in time for Halloween night? Then come to “Monster Make-up Madness” in room 101 right after school until 4:15 on Halloween. You can learn how to do the make-up and/or be a model that gets turned into a monster. No need to SIGN-up–just SHOW up…room 101 after school on Halloween! Another cool Pound thing, sponsored by some cool drama students!
