The debate team had a pumpkin carving contest outside in the parking lot after school today. Junior, Slovak student Adam Hano had never carved a pumpkin before, so the team got together in the spooky spirit to fully show him the American tradition.

Principal Jason Wenschlag and various other teachers filed outside to judge the various contestants, varying from a puking pumpkin to one representing Jesus and force of gravity as something to always rely on.  The team snacked on treats and bonded together instead of spending a couple of hours researching for the day.

The next debate tournament is November 7th, being the first tournament with the new topic: resolved, the European Union should require all member states to significantly increase the number of refugees the accept and resettle.
