It is that time of the year again. The sun rises over an infinite sea of royal blue waters, and there is nothing to do besides bask in the spring break feeling that only comes around once a year. The tons of stress on all of our shoulders is lifted for an incredible two-week break.
The Music Department is taking a group of show choir students to New York over spring break. They are not competing, but performing. They have prepared a piece for clinicians to look at and give feedback. Senior Sound System member Shayfer Sutton is very excited about the trip.
“I’ve never been to New York City before,” Sutton said. “So I am very excited to go for the first time with all of my friends.”
Other students are left in the dust of the mass exodus.
“I am very disappointed that my family isn’t letting me go anywhere,” junior Logan Coyle said. “But I am not going to take this beautiful Indiana weather for granted.”
Coyle is one of many students having a staycation this break.
“I am so upset about not going anywhere,” junior Dan Root said. “But no school is no school, and I love that.”
For traveling students, a popular spring break destination for is Ft. Myers Beach, Florida. This booming city is a popular spot for high school and college students.
“Ft. Myers is a great destination to hang out with my current Center Grove friends,” senior Harrison Holt said. “But it’s also great because I meet so many new people.”
“I love Ft. Myers because it is a wonderful place to take in the beauty of nature,” senior Connor Steeb said. “There is no doubt that Ft. Myers is a beautiful beach full of beautiful people.”
Spring break is upon us. As you countdown the final hours of school, remember to be safe and responsible this spring break.
