The trees are being shaken bare as leaves are falling in the Autumn air.

Halloween is a special time of year where Bruins of all ages can dress up, have fun, and, above all, eat candy!

Senior ASB President Bella Batula explained what Leadership is planning for this upcoming spooky event.

“I know next week on Tuesday (October 31), we’ll have a spirit day, so everybody dresses up in their Halloween attire,” she said, “The Alliance Club, which I’m still President for, is putting up a photo booth and having games at lunch, so the photo booth will be set up so everybody can dress up in their costumes and take pictures. But it’s also in the spirit of ‘Mix-It-Up Day,’ which also coincides on that day. ‘Mix-It-Up Day’ is all about students getting out of their social group that they hang out with everyday and just meeting people and getting to know them and kind of take away that judgement that comes from not knowing someone.”

Chan Looper, a senior, commented on Batula’s plans for “Mix-It-Up Day.”

“I think that’s awesome,” he said. “I think it sounds like a good idea. It helps us get to know each other.”

Halloween is one of the fun holidays that most think of when October comes around. When you think of Autumn, what do you think of?

Emily Adamson, a freshman, gave what she believed symbolizes this season.

“Colors,” she said. “I like the weather out of all the seasons. Rain! Thunder! Lightning!”

Bear River’s Principal, Dr. Amy Besler added what she enjoys most about this colorful season.

“Autumn is my favorite season; I am obsessed with the fall colors,” she said. “We have some incredibly beautiful trees on this campus and I just can’t get enough of the beauty.”

As Autumn is one of the seasons that most students enjoy the most, Batula struggled to focus on the negativities of it.

“Probably, because I’m a senior, I’d say my dislike would be all the stress coming from college applications,” she said. “You know, this is the time where everyone is filling all of them out, so I’m a little overwhelmed.”

Along with Bruin’s opinions of the season, Looper also added what he thought of the sudden change of weather.

“I like the weather change,” he said. “I think it’s nice to have a difference in weather, rather than just the same thing all year.”

Adamson also elaborated on what she loves about the weather.

“I like it, because it’s not hot and it’s not freezing,” she said. “It’s nice.”

The weather isn’t the only thing that is changing. Bear River Fall sports are slowly coming to an end.

“Our Fall sports teams have performed very well this year, as they often have in years’ past,” Dr. Besler said. “We are spoiled by how consistently awesome our athletic programs are. Water Polo and Girls’ Golf are already in the playoffs and Girls’ Volleyball just clinched their playoff berth. Cross Country is doing awesome, too, and Varsity Football just needs one more league win to make playoffs. They have all been exciting to watch and have competed fiercely and with Bruin pride and class. I am always so proud of our athletes and coaches for their dedication, sportsmanship, and teamwork.”

Batula also elaborated more on her opinion of Fall.

“Autumn is the best season and that is not a biased statement,” she said.
