It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown

TheMerronFamily Unfortunately, Charlie Brown couldn’t be there to see it, but the Carrollton Early Childhood PTA (CECPTA) made sure the iconic cartoon character’s favorite holiday was well-celebrated with the organization’s virtual pumpkin-carving contest. Photo submissions began October 17.

It was the parents who got down and dirty with all those punkin’ guts, but it’s never too early to begin making memories and sharing experiences with children — even in their early stages of development.


Parents with children under the age of six make up CECPTA. The organization is part of the same PTA network found in the public school system but is geared for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers. It allows the parents to meet, socialize, and develop a supportive network. There are monthly meetings, often with speakers focusing on topics important to parents of young children.
