    Halloween Poll

    Halloween Poll
    By Rhiannon Yee

    Hey Apaches! Halloween’s right around the corner and this year it’s fallen on a Saturday, so you don’t have to worry about waking up early the next day or studying for tests. Since this happens only once every seven years, what are your plans for the spookiest night of the year?

    Some people will never grow up, and will continue to dress up and go trick-or-treating until their own children make them stay at home. Sophomore Kaitlyn Forell agrees heartily, declaring, “You’re never too old to go trick-or-treating”. Others believe that dressing up is for little kids and gave up such childish traditions when they made the transition to high school. Most people attend costume parties with their friends, or stay home, watching scary movies and giving out candy. And there are always the select few who refrain from making jack-o-lanterns and eating candy corn, and instead get a head start on their homework for the upcoming week. After taking a poll of 300 students at AHS, from all different grade levels, see what your fellow Apaches are planning for Halloween!

    don't use second person. ever. you don't have to talk to the reader directly.
    no exclamation points! in articles, that is.
    no questions, either.


    Hey Apaches![fix.] Halloween’s right around the corner and this year it’s fallen [halloween hasn't happened yet. use "it falls"]on a Saturday, so you [fix.]don’t have to worry about waking up early the next day or studying for tests. Since this happens only once every seven years, what are your plans [fix.] for the spookiest night of the year? [fix.]

    Some people will never grow up, [take out comma] and will continue to dress up and go trick-or-treating until their own children make them stay at home. Sophomore Kaitlyn Forell agrees heartily, declaring, “You’re never too old to go trick-or-treating”. [period inside quotation marks] Others believe that dressing up is for little kids and gave up such childish traditions [change to "that childish tradition". in your other sentence, making jack-o-lanterns and eating candy are also childish traditions, so it doesn't make sense to have them both.] when they made the transition to high school. Most people attend costume parties with their friends,[take out comma] or stay home, watching scary movies and giving out candy. And there are always the select few who refrain from making jack-o-lanterns and eating candy corn, and instead get a head start on their homework for the upcoming week [this sentence has one too many "and"s. rephrase it.]. After taking a poll of 300 students at AHS, from all different grade levels, see what your [fix.]/color] fellow Apaches are planning for Halloween! [color=red][not a strong conclusion. can you come up with a better one?]

Many people will be sure to eat as much candy as they can get and since the day after is Sunday, everybody will have plenty of time to recuperate from an extreme sugar hangover.

    WHAT ARE YOU DOING ON HALLOWEEN?

    By Rhiannon Yee
    Staff Writer

    Halloween is right around the corner and this year it falls on a Saturday, so any concerns about tests and homework won’t stand in the way of staying up late and eating too much candy. Many people will be sure to eat as much candy as they can get, and since the day after is Sunday, everybody will have plenty of time to recuperate from an extreme sugar hangover.

    Senior John Bartolome is “really excited to go to the Halloween Haunt at Six Flags with [his] friends because it’s cool to try new things,” while junior Mindy Yuan prefers to go to Universal Studios. Some people will remain kids at heart and continue to dress up and trick-or-treat until their own children make them stay at home. Sophomore Kaitlyn Forell agreed heartily, declaring, “You’re never too old to go trick-or-treating.” Others believe that dressing up is for little kids and left that childish tradition behind when they made the transition to high school. Most people attend costume parties with their friends or stay home, watching scary movies and giving out candy. Still, there are always the select few who refrain from making jack-o-lanterns and eating candy corn; instead, they get a head start on their homework for the upcoming week. Since Halloween rarely falls on a the weekend, what are Apaches planning to do for the spookiest night of the year?

    PERCENTAGES:
    Doing Homework - 31%
    Dressing up and trick-or-treating - 25%
    Going out to a party with friends - 22%
    Staying home and giving out candy - 6%
    Other - 16%

    300 AHS students polled.
