After the bell rings ending lunch Friday, December 16, LHS students will be freed to a 19-day winter break. With almost three weeks of freedom, students must find something to occupy their time. This week the Daily Prowl asked students what their plans for winter break were.
Many students at LHS celebrate holidays such as Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Years’ celebrations. Holidays generally revolve around togetherness and family. Many students will be spending time with relatives they usually don’t get to see.
“I’m going on a cruise to the Bahamas with my aunt, uncle, and cousins,” sophomore Amber Maynard said.
“I’m going to Ocala to visit my aunt,” sophomore Kaylin Roddenberry said.
International Baccalaureate students will deck the halls with boughs of assignments, as the workload doesn’t seem to stop, even for the holiday season. When asked what he would be doing over the break, junior Charles Wayne flatly said, “Homework.”
“[We will be] killing ourselves over a world literature essay,” junior Angela McHugh said. “We also have to do a book analysis.”
Some students will be spending their time in extraordinary ways, from traveling to helping out in the community.
“I’m going to North Carolina to snowboard,” sophomore Christian Barber said.
“I’m going to work on a mural I was asked to do for my mom’s co-worker,” junior Gabrielle Zuniga said.
Meanwhile, students like freshman Wade Jenks will make the most of their winter break.
“Sleeping,” Jenks said simply.
