As we quickly approach our spring break that’ll fall on the 19th-22nd, students were asked why they felt breaks throughout the year are important.
Junior Addison Tolar said, “If you don't get breaks, you get burnt out.”
Junior Lydia Otten mentioned, “If we were constantly going and going, we would slip with our school work.”
Senior Seth Tolar commented, “I think it gives time to refuel and gather ourselves back up.”
Freshman Destiney Quick mentioned, “It gives us our own time to ourselves to be able to have fun rather than be tied down with the stress of school.”
Freshman Alyssa Beckmann stated, “I think breaks are important because if you are extremely overwhelmed with school and are staying up late doing homework, it's best to have a break.”
Senior Alex Trentmann exclaimed, “To keep your sanity intact, before the stresses of life crush you.”
Senior Mikayla Maloney stated, “Breaks are so important-- it gives us some time to breathe from school.”
Then, students were asked what they’re most excited for this spring break.
Senior Mikayla Maloney exclaimed, “I will be on senior trip, so I am most excited to be exploring a small part of our little world.”
Junior Lydia Otten stated, “I am excited to not have school and just relax from all of the craziness from school.”
Freshman Destiney Quick exclaimed, “Spending time with my family.”
Senior Seth Tolar commented, “All the candy from Easter we’re [going to] get.”
Lastly, students were asked what, if any, plans they had for Easter.
Junior Lydia Otten said, “Our church has an Easter sunrise service at 6:30 A.M., so we go to that and our regular church service at 10 A.M. Then we have an Easter egg hunt and go visit our grandparents.”
Junior Demetri Pataky stated, “If there's one thing I'm not doing, it's walking down the candy aisle at grocery stores. I can't stand Peeps; I won't go around them.”
Freshman Destiney Quick commented, “I go to church super early in the morning and then I go to Gerald to decorate my brother's yard for his kids. We then go out to my farm and we all meet out there to eat and fish and just have a good time.”
It sounds like students are eagerly anticipating a break and have an eventful Easter ahead of them!
