Happy Spring Break to All Our Students

Spring break is something that many children look forward to, no matter what shape or size, or even grade. This break is the beginning of the end of the year for most students and teachers. The school year is zipping by and it’s the last break we have in the year, so the children make it count.

Break is a time where all students do exactly what you think they do, be lazy and go hang out with friends. Work is hardly ever done during this time and it’s not for the best, it should be done but not the day before. A little bit every day will help the finished products, which will also teach children a healthy working habit.

A lot of your students always have a Facebook status saying, “Oh God. I have to finish (a project/homework assignment/ etc.), I shouldn’t have procrastinated.” What I do not understand is that this happens every time the day before a vacation ends. If you realize that procrastination isn’t going to help why you guys didn’t you do your (homework/project/etc.) before? I myself ask this very same question sometimes.

When you really think about it, You're the only one to blame for not doing your work. You were so caught up in having fun with friends, playing games, and being lazy, that time just passed by. You hadn’t a care in the world until that very day before the end of vacation. Sometimes you do your work before the end of vacation, sometimes you don’t and you get really angry at yourself.

Although us teachers may be on break the work does not stop here, oh not by a long shot. Being an eighth grader, for example, you may feel like you're at the top of the world because you're graduating this year. However, there is much work to still be done and things to learn. An entire marking period is left to go through and no student should forget that.

Although students may not always make the best decisions, they try to make the best of it. Even though their vacation have just started every one of them plan to make a good one and also to do their work. Let this be a year where students like you and all your other students, realize that procrastinating isn't the way to go but doing a little bit at a time.

Vacation is a time to relax a bit but no one should forget that there will be always something to go through after it. No matter what, never forget that students all like fun and games, but there is a time and a place.
