Fall Fest Fun
On Tuesday, October 25, 2022, PRHS hosted its annual Fall Fest. The event included rooms that PRHS clubs set up throughout the school where elementary students could play different games and activities to win prizes. All schools in the PR cluster were invited to attend.
Different PRHS clubs and sports set up fun activities for participants to enjoy. Some activities were the Swim Team’s ring toss in a pool, Disc Golf Club’s glow in the dark disc golf, and MHA’s circus games. Science National Honor Society had a mad scientists theme, HOSA had a skeleton theme, Sand Volleyball Club had a Top Gun theme, and the Humanities Club had a Visit the World theme.
When asked about her club’s room, senior Kayla Hoover said, "I worked with Interact Club, and what we did was dressed as cowboys, cowgirls, and I dressed up as an inflatable cow. We had two games where one of us would race one of the kids on a blow-up horse. Once they got to the end of the race, they would play pin the tail on the horse or cow. It was definitely a success, and my favorite part was getting to play with the kids because they were having so much fun. They all got so much candy and were so excited to be here!"
English teacher Marissa Miller added, "I am the club sponsor of Humanities Club, Knitting and Crocheting Club, and GSA. Humanities Club worked like an airport where participants ‘visited’ different countries and learned about their traditions. Knitting and Crocheting was the Fairy Glen where participants were able to take home magic fairy dust after cleaning up the forest a bit. GSA was the embodiment of Norse Mythology where participants played games of chance to trick them and win a prize. I loved seeing the children's faces light up as they got to play games and experience the beautiful and fun opportunities our high school students have created for them."
Porter Ridge hopes everyone had fun at Fall Fest and looks forward to doing it again next year!
