From April 1 through April 11, Jamestown closes its doors for 10 days, leaving students and staff free to do anything except come to school.

Spring break is a time for students and staff to decompress and get away from their normal routines. Whether they travel to tropical, far away beaches or just relax at home, everyone looks forward to it each year.

Many students are excited to kick back and relax by catching up on their favorite TV shows. “Spring break is when I get to hang out without worrying about anything school-related,” said junior Julia Haupt, “I will probably spend it sleeping or watching Netflix.”

Others use the week of spring break as an opportunity to prepare for future plans by exploring colleges. “I plan to go on a couple college visits down the East Coast to get an idea of what school I want to go to,” said junior Maria Esch, “Hopefully the colleges I visit will be not be on spring break, so I can get a feel of the people on the campuses.”

While some students cannot travel over break, they can still daydream about their desired vacations. Sophomore Emma Schriner wishes to visit Hawaii. “It seems like a beautiful place to visit, and I’ve never been there before,” said Schriner.

A couple of students have decided to spend their time volunteering to help places in the community.

Seniors Juliette Sim and Maddie Clevinger plan to fly to Honduras for a medical mission trip. Both girls and their parents will partake in offering free medical care, and also spend time at the local orphanage.

“I’m very excited to go back to the clinic and serve again and see the kids at the orphanage that I spent a lot of time with last time,” said Sim, who is a returning member of the mission trip.

“I believe there was a reason I was asked to go. Vacations can be remembered for a while, but I think I’ll remember this trip to Honduras for a lifetime,” said Clevinger.
