How to get the most enjoyment out of your Fall Break


Fall is beautiful in Louisville.

Some students may struggle with finding fulfilling activities over Fall Break, which will take place this year at Butler Traditional High School from Thursday, September 29 through Monday, October 3. Even though it is an extremely short period of time, you can always try to make the most of your time.

Fall is beautiful in Louisville.

There are many events for the Halloween Season that start around Fall Break. A very common appearance are pumpkin patch tours, so if you want to get into the Halloween spirit, that is a very good choice. 

Many Fall Festivals happen all around the city as September nears its end. Another big event is the “Portland Art and Heritage Fair,” which is an event that happens in the Portland Triangle that includes three of Louisville’s most historic buildings: the Portland Museum, the Dolfinger School, and the US Marine Hospital.

No matter how many events pop up, they won’t ever actually dictate what actual students do.

Sophomore Andre Bradley says, over the break, he’s going to be, “Chilling at home, probably walking my dogs a lot, just living life.” Very casually living and enjoying his time off school seems like the main goal for Bradley, which mimics a very large majority of actual students. 

Sophomore Jorge Blas simply said, “Just relax,” when questioned on his Fall Break plans. This goes to show how breaks are actually used for students—not as a time for major events, or out of the home activities, but as a period of relaxation. 

So, what should Butler students do during their Fall Break? Just “take a break” over your break. This may sound like a simple answer, but there are quite a few possibilities to achieve true relaxation. You could engage with a hobby you enjoy, spend time with family and friends, or even play your favorite games and watch your favorite shows for an extended period of time. 

During Fall Break this year, you should relax, take a breath, and most importantly, rest.
