Free candy? Crazy costumes? Cold weather? Pumpkin patches? Mazes? That would be the sound of a new month. With fall starting off to chilly weather and chaos with homecoming, there are so many opportunities to explore new activities within around the city.

Having summer finally end, students are always wondering what to do. If you’re willing to drive, it’s never too early to visit the Pumpkin Patch! Mazes, candy, carnival games and rides, what isn’t there to look forward to? One close by is Moore’s Pumpkin Patch. It’s a perfect place to bring friends or family, going on carnival games or hay rides. Towards the end of the month comes Halloween, the holiday that’s meant for dressing up and eating candy. Don’t forget to wear your costumes to school, but be sure they are appropriate. To end the month on a good note, visit Great America’s show for their Halloween Haunt, students in the past have had such an amazing night. Junior Isabel Bomfim said “It was an amazing night, it was even more special to go with my friends”.

Throughout the month of October don’t forget about the football games. It’s a great way to show spirit, and there is nothing better than supporting Dublin High. If that doesn’t appeal to you, enter in a 5k Halloween run/ walk, it’s a perfect way to start off the holiday weekend, a popular run is the Pleasanton Rotary Spirit 5k!

Not only do students celebrate Halloween, but our own Dublin High teacher, Mrs. McGinley says her children “already had their costumes picked,and are going to take them trick-or-treating”.  Assistant Principal, Kara Holthe has quite a busy month coming up!  ‘’Supporting a golf tournament in my husbands name, Peter Holthe, to raise money for cancer awareness, with 150 people attending. And then a Bridge School Benefit Concert at the Shoreline Amphitheatre which also raises money for individuals with disabilities’’.
Seems that everyone is pretty busy for the rest of the month, so make sure to stay safe and have a fabulous beginning to fall!
