The Party Was a [W]RIOT

Freshman Danielle Pointer, junior Helen Velasquez, sophomore Rachel Velasquez, junior Leah Coreas and junior Aabha Kc carve their pumpkins at the WRIOT Pumpkin Carving Social.

The creative writing club (WRIOT) carved pumpkins after school on Tuesday, October 30. Each member brought their own pumpkin and chose the design to carve. The club has been trying to conduct more outside activities to unify the club.

“The pumpkin carving party really brought us together,” WRIOT Vice President junior Kassandra Oviedo said. “With the festive feeling and the fun we had, it was really cool.”

Sophomore Jaxon Andrews carved a dinosaur as well as the words “riot” into his pumpkin. Andrews said he enjoyed himself and had a blast carving his pumpkin with his peers.

“I had a lot of fun,” Andrews said. “Everyone in WRIOT is really cool, and it’s a comfortable space to be in.”

This was junior Aabha Kc’s first time carving a pumpkin.

“We bonded because we were able to express our artistic abilities through different outlets,” Kc said. “It was fun, because it was a new experience for me.”

The club is planning a Friendsgiving with cultural foods to celebrate Thanksgiving.

“The Thanksgiving party will be another opportunity for us to come together as friends,” Oviedo said.
