Spring into Action
By Chase C.
What is the most fun you have ever had in your life? Do you have a favorite memory of having such unbelievable fun? Maybe it was at an amusement park, the beach, or on a family vacation. I bet you anything though that if you think of the funniest moments of your life one of them was on spring break. That's not a coincidence. Spring break is essential for all who are students as it provides a week of relaxation and fun when the weather is just turning perfect. Spring Break is an American pastime that needs to be kept the same.
We here at Mountain Range we have just finished our first week back from spring break. Admittedly that first week sucks. It sucks so much because we had just had an amazing week off and we miss that feeling so much we would give a limb to get back out of the classroom. For so many, spring break is an excuse to travel to different states and even countries to vacation and party and stay out way too late and regret their decisions way too much the next morning. For most this is an ideal idea of vacation on spring break. For me and for a lot others just staying at home and not having to do a thing is a vacation we would gladly take in a heartbeat. This Spring Break waas the perfect down time to relax and reset for the last quarter or so of school.
Spring Break is essential for students to take a much needed break. Before spring break from January to March are some of the most stressful months. You feel as if you have a fresh start from semester one but those assignments quickly pile up if you are not on top of them. Spring Break has been shown to be necessary for students to catch up on any work so they can really start with a clean slate. Research confirms my thinking as well. Dr Micheal says this time is important as well in his debate about the topic. In “Why is Spring Break Important” he says “Spring break poses as a fabulous chance to mentally decompress, it is great for the physical health, it is the perfect opportunity to get out and travel to some extent, and it allows ample time and space to catch up with anything that might require a bit more focus.” This is showing that spring break is essential for all students to take time off and catch up on any work they really need to so that way they come back better than before and even more eager to stay on top of their work.
I had such a great time on my Spring Break and I know other students did as well. Even though this is our last year of high school and some are not going to college these spring break memories will always flood our brain. Every year for the rest of our lives when the weather starts to get warmer and warmer everybody will always be remembered on how not so long ago the weather was like this and Spring Break was upon us. This break has become so important in others lif and I hope that they never shorten it or try to take anything from its glory.
