While the rest of the kids come back from their three week break. They do not go to school for the whole year without getting no breaks. The first reason why kids should have a summer break is because year-round schools are too complicated. One of the complications is money.
Kids’ minds are active during the summer programs. Positive attitudes can come from summer program activates outside. Summer can help kids discover new interests. If kids are active they can lose weight and not rot their brains on video games. Kids could have good family memory’s.
The bell rings and school is out, and this time, not for just the weekend, but for the long awaited 2 and ½ months of summer vacation! This is something that just about every student has been longing for all year. They can finally experience those amazing trips and vacations planned throughout the summer. Well, that’s how it should be at least.
In David Updike’s “Summer”, Homer is overcome with an innocence yet fixated crush on Sandra. The adolescents spend their school-free summer at Sandra and Fred’s family lake house. This vacation, according to Homer, proves to be different. Homer, Fred and Sandra’s transition to adulthood is much like the change from summer to fall they are experiencing. If Homer could get out of his own head, then he could get the girl and summer of his dreams.
“The Glory of a Summer Sleep” by Michael McGirr Healthy levels of sleep and sleep schedules correlate to strong mental health and higher test scores, a fact especially relevant for the millions of sleep deprived teens. Sentiments of success at the cost of mental and physical wellbeing are ingrained in society. Furthermore, wasting time is looked down upon and seen as unproductive, although it can have positive effects on efficiency and emotions. This cycle of sleep deprivation in pursuit of success is entrenched in my life.
Reading,"The Sun Goes Down on Summer" by Steve Lawhead brought back feelings I have about summer ending, school starting again, and being the real me! Summer ending means no more late night adventures. It means all the relaxing is traded in for hardcore studying. It means getting ready to see which friends will leave you and change for new friends. In the poem, Steve feels anxiety about starting school again, I relate to this in a big way!
They are in fact the least intelligent class in the high school. A. Freshmen are not smart by nature. They may score high on tests or have a good GPA, but they are not socially smart. One time Karson Sharar, a freshman, asked the question, “What is hazing?” If this doesn’t prove to you that all freshmen are stupid, because they aren’t even
Since Scout does not like school, she does not want to come to school too. Atticus tells her that the law demands that she go to school. Chapter 4 The rest of the school year passes poorly for Scout, who constantly feel frustrated due to slow curriculum. The next summer Dill has returned to Maycomb.
Year-round school usually has 45 days of school and then a 15 day break. But there is no summer break like traditional school. This leaves teachers with a little over two weeks to prepare for next school year. If teachers have to change their decorations or update their curriculum, they have barely enough or not enough time to prepare for a new year. This would put teachers in a hard situation and would not give them time to be with their family.
Outside of the weekend the only real time off we had was 2 weeks for Christmas break and one week for spring break outside of a day here and there for various holidays. My children for the past couple of years have been on a "blended" schedule. They have a 2 month summer with an extra week for spring break and a full 2 weeks for fall break while still going the 180 required days. As a parent we like this schedule much better than the traditional schedule. Having the extra
Students that are in school during the summer find it harder to concentrate on the work that they are doing in school because they are waiting to get out of school into the nice weather. Year round schools make it difficult to learn with many breaks that they are given which can affect them negatively in and out of school. Year round schools should give long breaks instead of many little breaks because it is shown that there is no difference in learning between year round schools and traditional schools. During 2011-2012 about 3,700 schools were all year round schools and these schools didn’t benefit students and teachers in all good ways.
Summer vacation is a highly solvable problem. A successful schedule to American schools can be as the one that KIPP middle school has today and strongly demonstrates how their students are obviously highly intelligent and disciplined with
Last year almost 21 million kids nationwide are on free or reduced lunches. These kids eat their main meals at school and don’t get much while at home. During the summer this can be a disaster. While children in poverty are on long breaks, their families can’t afford to keep feeding them. This results in very non nutritional meals or no meals at all.
Traditional school schedules have kids in school from late summer until late spring, the year-round schedule has kids in school all year but the difference is there are longer breaks in the year-round schedule. It is time to switch from the traditional schedule to the year-round schedule because students learn better and don’t lose information over a long summer break, is more convenient for everyone and reduces the stress of school and makes it more enjoyable. To begin students under the current school schedule where there is one long break in the summer are more vulnerable to losing the information they have learned the past year. Summer break causes students to forget material that they have learned which causes problems because it wastes
