Late spring break takes the cake

Students and staff enjoy the late timing of spring break

Spring break is a time that students look forward to all year long. It is a time when students have a break from the hardest part of the school year, and where they can relax and enjoy themselves. It is the last break in the year before summer vacation. There are a variety of things that students and staff members do during spring break, including traveling, sports, visiting family, etc.

English teacher Christoph Nordmark said he stayed home during spring break and spent time with his family. He did various activities with his daughters to pass the time.

“We were going to go camping, but snow came, so we had to cancel those plans. We went to the zoo, we went to the waterpark, we went to indoor playgrounds, and did some home projects.” Nordmark said.

Junior Theo Holmberg said he traveled during spring break. He took a trip with his friend, and they spent time having fun in a city they had never been to.

“I went to Seattle during spring break with my friend, Erek. We spent most of our time exploring the city. My favorite part was going to the parks by the bay,” Holmberg said.

Freshman Jacob Berry also traveled during spring break. According to Berry, he went on a trip with his Dad to see family and spend time bonding together.

“I went to Arizona with my Dad. We visited family, and we played a lot of golf. Top golf was the most fun part of the trip,” Berry said.

As for the timing of spring break, Holmberg said spring break should be later. He said this will be helpful to ease the stress of the final part of the school year.

“I wish that spring break would be a little bit later because it would make the last stretch before summer a lot easier. I also wish it was a bit longer because that would make it more relaxing,” Holmberg said.

Berry said he likes the timing of spring break, as it is a perfect break between the 3rd and 4th quarters of the year. He said spring break is also the perfect length.

“I honestly like where it’s at, it’s the perfect break between 3rd and 4th quarter. It only being a week also makes us get out of school sooner, which is nice,” Berry said.

Nordmark also likes the timing of spring break. He says that it leaves the perfect amount of time left in the school year to be able to have a successful end of the year.

“I like that ours is a little later; delayed gratification, I guess. It leaves us with just April and May, which kind of means we’re closer to the light at the end of the tunnel,” Nordmark said.
