Honoring an annual tradition, students and teachers at Inverness Elementary celebrated fall with the addition of scarecrows on the lawn in front of the school, according to school officials.
This year, the scarecrows have been themed after each class’ favorite children’s book.
The IES children, with the help of parent volunteers, began their constructions Sept. 14 and installed their finished products Sept. 17.
After their stint guarding the school entrance, the scarecrows will be moved in October to the Birmingham Zoo, where they will remain on display for the duration of Boo at the Zoo. The IES kindergarten classes will take a field trip to the zoo to view the scarecrows Oct. 29.
