Facts and Comments About Spring Break by Christian


At Natomas Charter School, students and staff are enjoying Spring Break for two weeks. Spring Break is about having fun during the school year and not worrying about homework for two weeks. It is also the time of Easter which is a very important holiday to the Christian and Catholic religions. 

I made a survey to find out how students would be spending their time off. At spring break, 18 out of 36 or 50% of the people who responded to the survey are not going anywhere and 18 out of 36 or 50% of the people are going somewhere. I know that means for the people staying home it is probably going to be spent playing video games and watching TV. So, I am going to focus on the people going somewhere. 

Kyle S. says, “I am going to Las Vegas for an International Karate Tournament called Ozawa Cup. After that, we are staying to have fun for a few days.” Many students are traveling such as Lauren who is going on a road trip to Washington and Becky who is going to check out colleges with her family for her older brother. Others are going to southern California, like Jaden, Liaba, and Justin who are going to San Diego. Eyesha's also hoping to go to Disneyland. Kate and Manelle are also going to see places around California like Hearst Castle and Universal Studios.

Anshul is going somewhere fun on his spring break too, “I am going to Mexico on a Carnival cruise. There are sports like (golf, tennis, swimming), water parks, restaurants, rooms, libraries, computer labs, make your own pizza area, and much more. [The boat] will travel from LA to Mexico and in Mexico we will get out for some hours and then go back on the ship and head back.” 

This is Emily’s travel plans for spring break, “My family and I are going to Redwood National Park for my mom's birthday. We were going to stay there for one night.Shane, Sam, Minerva, Sierra, and Kobi also mentioned spending time with family. Sai said, "I am going to Bakersfield to celebrate my Oldest Uncle's 60th birthday by reanacting their marriage. Plus, I am going to spend a lot of time with them. I have heard that we are going somewhere fun like a theme park."

Now let’s hear from Bethany, ”I am going to go to the FMC Technologies in Davis over spring break on March 31, with the 3D Printer Pioneer Team and Mrs. Bibayoff. We are going to learn more about 3D printers and get to see bigger 3D printers. I am very excited for this trip and really want to learn more technologies.”

As for me, I joined my fellow printer pioneers at FMC Technologies and we saw how the ROVs (Remotely operated vehicles) worked and how they are built. They cost around 3.5 million dollars for one small unit. The arms can carry 900 pounds. The units can also go down to 7000 meters under water. Thank you Mrs. Bibayoff for the trip it was really fun.
Have a great Spring Break everybody!

  2. Hi All !!! It seems everyone is having fun, and everyone will. Thanks for writing a blog about this, as it gives us a good idea on where students are going and can give us an idea on where to go next. I also saw that you mentioned my response in the blog. I would really like to add more about what I did on my trip in this comment, to give you all more of an idea of a cruise, if you have never been on one. Overall, the cruise I traveled on had so many things. In the mornings, there would be breakfast from about 5 to 10. It's so cool, because it will be a huge buffet with hundreds of dishes. As I am writing about breakfast, I will just go ahead and explain about food. Breakfast will be held in the tenth deck for everyone. It's so huge, that it is not packed, although it has hundereds of people. There is also a place called Pizza Pirate, and an ice cream machine. The best part about these is that they are open 24hrs. This means, that any time, like while playing or basically any time, you could just go to the deck and eat ice cream or pizza. Lunch is a buffet, at the same place, but different times. Dinner is the only time when multiple restraunts are open. There is also a library with books, and board games (It was closed most of the time). The pool area was also so fun, as there were also a water park on the other side with big slides (One was the twister). This was a great trip, and well it's something that words can't express than the experience itself. Also another great adventure for your next trip could be going to the queen Mary ship. It would be great for shorter periods of time. Happy Rest of Spring Break!!!
