WOODBURY — The lunchroom, classes and conversations in the hallway all have one thing in common in Nonnewaug High School: the talk of spring break. 

Spring break is right around the corner and NHS students are ready to take on this break in full force. From spring games, vacations or just staying at home, students are finding ways to make the most of their vacation.

For some students, their spring break is traveling to Florida. The baseball team will be taking a trip to play against other competition down south. 

“I’m excited to spend a portion of my last year playing baseball in an environment I’ve never been to and being able to do it with friends I’ve known for 10-plus years,” said Nick Rose, a senior baseball player. “It’s the perfect way for me to say goodbye to baseball.”

The baseball team will be leaving April 7 at 7:15 a.m. and will be getting back the following Wednesday. 

For others, however, work and dentistry are priorities.

“I am going to work for two days and then going to get my wisdom teeth out,” Michael Lafauci, an NHS senior, stated. “I’m going to be bored out of my mind.” 

The thought of saving money up for summer and other various ideas are on the minds of a lot of people. Using this time off from school provides students with multiple full days worth of work hours to accumulate spending and saving money. 

Majority of students are using this time off from school to catch up on some work. 

“Because of senioritis everyone is falling behind, so during April break, I’m using it as an opportunity to catch up on schoolwork and get ready for college,” said senior Alyssa Hodges.

“I have a lot of missing work that I keep putting off,” said Hannah Searles, a junior, “so I think this will be a good opportunity to catch up on everything.”

Even though the majority of students seem to be staying home, taking spring break in as a time to relax, or to finish up some work, we do have some travelers. 

“I am going to New York with my mother and going to watch Broadway shows for three days,” senior Emily Lungarini said. “I am just really excited to go see them because the two musicals we are going to see are some of my favorite music. I listen to it all the time, so I’m excited to hear it in person.”
