Perfectly painted pumpkins: An APC Kickback event

Advanced Peer Counseling event brings out fall creativity

Advanced Peer Counseling held its first Kick-Back event of the year on Thursday Oct. 28 at lunch with students showcasing their artistic abilities. The medium? Pumpkins, in all shapes and sizes. 

Over 200 of them were collected from various markets and pumpkin farms in order to provide for the event. Even then they ran out of pumpkins towards the end of lunch as students took the opportunity to decorate a squash.

“We decided we needed activities that will help bring kids together and will help harness that idea of meeting new people,” Advanced Peer Counselor and event coordinator Amaan Nabeel said. 

According to senior Tunga Jois, the event was also organized to help students relieve some stress. 

“There’s a lot of academic pressure going on especially right now with college applications,” Jois, who also organized the event as part of APC, said. “This is a great way for students to kind of just relax, have downtime, and kick back.”
