However, a school could compensate for lost time by adding time to the end of another day that week if they found this to be an issue. To ensure that four-day school weeks will be implemented throughout school districts, voice concerns to school board members. Although some have oppositions to the idea of a four-day school week, it is clear that this modification would be for the greater good of the schools. By omitting a school day, students, parents, staff, and the environment will benefit
Although this may be true, if there is more work on snow days this will help kids over time. WTHR news states, “At least one central Indiana school district wants to handle the winter weather differently this year, by eliminating snow days. Those will be replaced with e-learning days, where students continue to work from home. One Shelby County school district says it means more learning through technology. There's a virtual attendance sheet, unique lessons online and tech support for kids without WiFi"He was really upset he couldn't stay home today and play in the snow," Howard said.” This means how students will be helped and the work load and become small.
But I know that there are some cons to having a four day school week. People may argue that what will the parents of the younger children do for the day off. I tried to change this con into a positive and thought about how since the whole school gets the day off why don’t you ask and have a high schooler watch your children. But nun the less people still might argue about how it cost money. I know that this will be a problem for some families, but I believe we can come up with a solution.
Taking long breaks from education can distract one and may lead to taking more than one year of a break. While taking a break from school before going to college, may cause some people to become young parents, then going back to school will not be a priority because now the main focus will be about their child. I think it is better to go right after high school that way you are not
First, with an earlier start time there is more daylight for sports, allowing for longer practices. Second, Cline (2011) writes that a later start time can impact hours for after-school jobs; which are necessities for some students saving up for college or buying their first car. Third, “Starting the day early means more time for after-school tutoring and that student-athletes miss fewer classes to travel to after-school competitions” (Anderson, n.d., para. 2). An early start helps to ensure that a student or student-athlete can get help on a topic that they struggle with.
Thanksgiving and Christmas: Similar but Different As the cold outside air whips faces and flurries dance, American’s begin prepping for the festive holiday season. The two major holidays during this time of year are Thanksgiving and Christmas. These two holidays are major gathering days for families and are both a chance for students to take a few days off of school. Although these celebrations are similar, both holidays have individual characteristics that make the events unique and different from one another. This essay will examine more closely the similarities and differences, specifically comparing and contrasting the origins of the holidays, the foods that are served, and the celebration traditions.
However, in the American Society when people turn a year older they get gifts from their friends and family, typically gifts that these people want and have asked for. So the similarities of these two societies is that when people turn a year older they get a gift, but the differences are, that the gifts in the Giver’s society are given to the kids by the community's committee and in the American society, people are given gifts by friends and family which are things that they want. Overall, the differences yet similarities, of these two societies helps demonstrate what certain people believe is a utopia and what will create a better society. People believe certain things that are different from the American Society would create a
It was so cool to see a change in my mom knowing that now we are going to live eternally in Heaven after we die. Now fast forward I have gotten so close to my new adopted family and my adopted grandma and grandpa are going to take me on a trip to Branson after Christmas. I was so happy I counted down the days to Christmas already but now I am counting down the days till after Christmas. Christmas eve comes fast. Every year we went to my real grandma's house so nothing was going to change this year.
This story is all about me and moving to my new house on Thanksgiving break. The day went very well and it ended up nice, but it could have been better. I somehow relive that week over and over. Nothing bad happened during that time though. If it did, I’ll explain how I’m going to fix that.
The decision in 2015 to change the school start time later was based of two years of study and debate. Supporters have argued that later high school start time were a good decision because kids are more likely to go to bed later and wake up later. They also said that kids with lack of sleep are at increased risk of depression, car accidents or other problems. But since they changed the time to a later start time at the high school the elementary schools had to change there time also which adds 20 extra minutes to the
The only reason people wouldn’t agree would be because they want to spend time with their children, but they will still be able to because year round schooling gives short bursts of breaks about two weeks every other month(Towler). Finally, Year-Round Schooling would be a great idea to interpret and merge into our school . so that we can not just learn more but not be stressed out and forget what we learned the previous year. What they don’t know is that the People around kids need them to go to school all the time not just for education but, also so they may go to work and feed their families. This method of teaching is something that I have experienced when I was a child and I enjoyed learning while taking one week break about every
The following year the first few weeks are typically spent reviewing or relearning lessons from the previous year. Rose Edwards a principal of Carpenter Elementary in Lake Orion, Michigan stated this: "Our teachers tell us they typically used to spend four to six weeks in review. Now it 's not even a week. Last year ,our first-grade teacher moved into second-grade math with three weeks left in school. Therefore, they were reviewing second-grade curriculum when they returned."
Usually this is the solution people think of when there is overcrowding. However what if there was a solution that could help save the town a ton of money! Well there is, and it is year round schooling. Students would alternate the dates they would be going to school and they wouldn’t have to
This is because it breaks the holiday tradition and people overspend on these Christmas “deals”. However, if you love Christmas time, so much, why only celebrate it in the month of December when you could celebrate all year long? Stay tuned for more information on this argument! First off, when we start signalizing Christmas by putting up garnishes before Thanksgiving, we forget what the concept of what Thanksgiving really is about. Thanksgiving is a time to give gratitude for our family and celebrate all the blessings we have.
When I would talk to my cousins they would seemed to think of school as something to do so their parents won’t have to go to jail, but I think St Rita is much more. St. Rita means so much to me I can’t even put it into words. This school has been my second home not only because I come here to often but because I have a “family” here. You would think after nine and a half years I would get tired of school, nut I still get excited to come back to school after only a week break. This year is different, instead of missing school and my friends over the summer break, I won’t have the relief of knowing St Rita is there to come back to.
