Classes have resumed for NHHS. Students returned on January 4, but the teachers returned a day earlier for a professional development day. The students’ and faculty’s break started on December 22, so they had a little over a week and a half.
A recent survey was sent out to the students of NHHS about a recap of how their winter breaks went. Out of the responses received, every single student said they enjoyed their winter break!
One question that was asked was, “What was your favorite thing about winter break?” Most of the answers consisted of not being at school or getting to relax and sleep in. There were a few answers, however, that were different.
Tim Madden, junior, said his favorite thing about break was “seeing a snowy Christmas after losing hope of that sight. Also seeing my friends and family.”
Dori McCarty, freshman, said, “My favorite things about my winter break were getting to spend time with my family and, on some days, getting to sit around and be lazy.”
The second question asked was, “What was your least favorite thing about break, if any.” Mckenzie Gerling said that it was too short.
Angel Koch, sophomore, said, “Nothing really, if I am being honest.”
Students in general said they wished there was more snow during break.
When Liz Hughes, senior, was asked why she wished winter break were longer, she responded with, “Because I don’t like the structure that school brings to my life. I actually have to go to bed at a decent time.”
It is already the start of the second semester, so we are already halfway there! Only four more months to go, NHHS!
