Summer break gives kids and teachers a break and time to prepare for next year. All year school schedules can be complicated for families and school activities. I chose the side of summer vacation. Summer vacation is a better way to go than an all year school schedule. It is what all kids will remember for years to last.
Many schools throughout the United States take summer vacations to give students a break from school. Other schools make their students attend school year-round and they get shorter breaks. For the school I attend, W.J. Christian K-8 Alternative Program, it would be best to have one long summer break. We get more work than average students our age, so we are more tired throughout the school year.
The freedom from school that comes during summer break or vacation is greatly anticipated by students all over the country. Summer break helps students rest and prepare for the next round of school. Unfortunately, the time to recharge during the summer is disappearing for some students with the rise of year-long schools. While year-long schools have some benefits, they are not advantageous to the student. With hectic schedules, late nights, and the pressure to push themselves academically, it is important that students have summer break to regain their social, physical, and psychological health.
One of the holidays of the summer is July 4th you can enjoy free fireworks at many places and not spend money. I enjoy shopping for summer clothes is the best, everything from cute sandals to maxi dresses. One of the best parts about summer is that “I’’ve been in the sun, no makeup type of feeling.” Summer comes with endless things to do, without having to worry about the roads or the sun going down at 5 pm. I can pretty much play any sport in the summer, as the weather after the sun goes down is still warm. However not everything about summer is good.
Summer vacation is beneficial for students because it gives them a break from school, time for family, time to take courses and look for jobs. (Raisingsmallsouls) It is beneficial for students to have a good summer vacation because students need a break and time off of school and work. Health can always be dangerous and an issue, if students keep studying without a break it could hurt them physically or mentally. (Wilson). Students being hurt and distracted can cause their grades to drop and that would be bad for them.
According to the National Summer Learning Association, around sixty percent of students do not have activities scheduled for the summer. This fact may not seem very important at the moment, but this is a very unhealthy way to live throughout summer break. Having no scheduled activities lead to watching TV or playing video games, and studies have shown that students lose two months of school education throughout the summer because they don’t participate in many educational activities. Not only is summer the most unproductive season, but it is also the most uncomfortable. In fact, summer is the worst smelling season of the year.
My first summer there was the summer of 2001. I was five years old about to turn six. I attended this camp every summer until I was the age of fifteen, and then worked there as a counselor for three summers after that. This camp has very special place in my heart. It was what I looked forward to all school year.
The skies were clear, the breeze was blowing perfectly, and the air was crisp and fresh as ever. I was a camp counselor at a summer camp. The summer camp itself was extremely fun.
This summer was filled with great times and a lot of fun with the family. For example, my trip to Cape Cod, Massachusetts. It all started out at 7:30 AM and with me, I was my morning self wearing baggy sweatpants, and an out of control bed head awaiting to be tamed. My sister Sam and I gather our things before we head into grandma’s car for a trip of a lifetime. “Beep beep!” The sound of my grandma's car made us both rush ourselves outside.
Some people would prefer their vacation to be all about relaxing and sitting by the beach. Others would like their vacation to be mostly about shopping. Also, if there is a child going with you on the trip you might want to think about visiting places that would
