Spring Break NTHS Style!

Tana Black 2017-04-28



We invited our members to tell us why their Spring Breaks were so memorable this year, and we had a fantastic response! Each one of the students below will be receiving a prize packet, including one of our new NTHS brand t-shirts! We wish we could have published all the entries we received, but here are a few of our favorites…

“Over my spring break I went to Chicago,
Illinois with the Wadsworth High School Marching Band. We attended the performances of ‘Mama Mia’ as well as ‘The Blue Man Group.’ We spent a morning at the bean in Millennium Park, an afternoon at the Navy Pier, and the evening in the John Hancock Center. We had the opportunity to go to the Shedd Aquarium, as well as the Driehaus Museum. It was an educational and exciting experience that I was ecstatic to share with my friends.”

“My spring break was an awesome adventure. I decided to take a road trip
across Mississippi by myself. I wanted to spend that time getting to know myself more because since school had started, I haven’t been treating myself like I should. I ended up traveling 283 miles away from my home and in ended up in Olive Branch, MS. I walked for hours that night taking pictures of all the local sites like a blues festival and a children’s circus act. In the end, all I could think of that night was what a wonderful time it is to be alive. I worked on strengthening my faith and letting myself relax more. But most importantly, I got to rediscover myself and make sure I was okay and healthy in general. When I got back to school, I knew that I was going to be okay until summer break.”

“My mom had originally planned to go to the mountains for spring break, but that fell through and we decided on Orlando. We didn’t have a plan or specific place to go, but ended up going to Legoland for my little brothers. it wasn’t quite as good as I had hoped, but I still got some good memories out of it.”

“For spring break my family and I went to Jamaica to explore the countryside
 and take a break from regular city life! We went to Dunn’s River Falls, Bob Marley’s old home in Nine Mile, Jamaica, zip lining and tubing in the Jamaican rain forest, and ATV riding through the farms and off the coast! It was an amazing experience and I would definitely go back!”

“My 10 day spring break consisted of a lot of driving back and forth from Ohio to Virginia to visit family and take senior pictures (FINALLY!) and spending the week with my grandma in Virginia. She is sadly selling her beautiful 3 story home full of memories and moving on to smaller houses, but better places! I helped her with a FIVE page to-do-list and I’m happy to say we got most of the items crossed of the list!”
