Shifting From Summer to Fall

Avery Gronholz
Members of the Senior class welcome the fall season during Senior Sunrise.

As the summer sun slowly starts to dim and fall rolls around the corner, you may start to notice a few changes. The weather is getting colder and days are becoming shorter. Visiting pumpkin patches and apple orchards, making your way through corn mazes and decorating for Halloween can be such an exciting time. Ordering pumpkin spice lattes at our cafe, which is a new addition to this year’s menu and adored by students like senior Penelope Ruljancich. “Yummy, yummy, in my tummy,” said Ruljancich. Leaves on trees have started to transform into brilliant shades of yellow and orange. Not only are the trees changing their looks, but people seem to reflect the same shift. From wearing cozy sweaters to knee high boots, our looks become accustomed to all things fall.

Fashion is a huge part of each and every season. This summer we saw a plethora of long flowy skirts and jean shorts. For the upcoming fall season we will be seeing all different shades of red to go with bags, nail polish, and shoes, like the Adidas Gazelle. Other fashion trends include Mary Janes, gothic glamor, long coats, off-the-shoulder sweatshirts, hair bows and wide-leg jeans. 

Summer was all fun and games, but as the heat dies down and fall attire gets pulled out, there is a lot of stress around school. With assignments and summer reading due, the fall semester can be a lot for people; students and teachers alike. Teachers have to create lesson plans and learn everyone’s name. Seniors make time to submit their college applications before the deadline to have the best chance of getting into their desired colleges. One example of this was made present by a National Honor Society student, senior Liana Kauffman. “I make time by getting my homework done before the weekend so that I am available to work on college applications,” said Kauffman. Seniors are not the only ones dealing with hard tasks. Juniors and sophomores deal with AP classes and fall sports, while freshmen struggle to find their way around the school.

To make your time in high school more enjoyable, join a club or sport, make your study space a place where you can focus. Even though there is a downside to the back-to-school season, you get to see your friends and create an amazing space of growth and discovery.
