Summer vacation... the two most beautiful words in the world to almost all English-speaking students! Yes, it’s true... summer vacation is almost here. It is the time we become free from school and get a long, relaxing break before moving on to the next grade. Though we have the freedom to do whatever we want, not everyone sits around and vegges out.

This reporter sent a survey to all of the classes and then sent out a reminder notice. Despite all of the efforts made, not all of the surveys were received. This reporter did manage to get back some, though. These are the results (some students may be doing more than one thing):

Of the two kindergarten surveys this reporter received, 20 kids are going to day camp and 4 are going to special theme camps. None are going to sleepaway camps. 10 students are going to stay home, and 14 are going to visit their family or friends. Twelve will be taking trips inside of the U.S. Four will go to a beach club, 5 are going to go to a summer house, and 10 are going to the pool.

Of the three first grade surveys returned, 32-34 students are going to day camp and 3 are going to special theme camps. Three are going off to sleepaway camp, sixteen are going to stay home, and 14 are going to visit family or friends. Eighteen are taking trips inside the U.S. One is going away camping, and 1 is going to their summer house.

Of the two second grade classes that responded, 20 children are going to day camp, 7 are going to go to special theme camps, and 1 is going to sleepaway camp. Six kids are going to stay home, and 15 are going to visit family or friends. Ten are going on trips inside of the U.S., and 8 are venturing out of the U.S. to go on trips. Six are going to summer school, and 8 are doing other activities.

Of the four third grade class surveys this reporter got an answer to, 35 kids are going to day camp, 17 are going to special theme camps, and 16 are going to go to sleepaway camp. Five are going to stay home, and 33 are going to visit some of their family or friends. Twenty-four are going on trips inside of the U.S., and 12 are leaving the U.S. for trips. Two are going to summer school. Two are on a swim team, 1 is going on day trips, and one is opening a science club.

Of the four fourth grade class surveys, 40 are going to day camp, 18 are going to special theme camps, and 30 are going to leave home and go to sleepaway camp. Eleven are going to stay home, and 40 are going to visit family or friends. Forty-one are going on trips inside the U.S., and 20 are going outside of the U.S. on a trip. Four are going to summer school, and 1 is going on a cruise.

Of the three fifth grade class surveys this reporter got back, 34 people are going to day camp, 22 are going to special theme camps, and 18 or 19 are going away to sleepaway camp. Twenty-four students are going to stay home. Thirty-four are going to visit their family or friends, and 27 are going on trips inside the U.S. Ten are leaving the U.S. to go on a trip, and 2 are going to summer school. Some other various activities: four are going to their summer house, 13 are going to a summer club, 4 are going sailing, and 2 are going jet skiing. One is taking horseback lessons, one is on a scout staff, one is in a chess club, and one is going to the beach and pool.

Now you’re probably very excited for summer vacation and freedom from school, whatever you have planned. Don’t worry - it’s coming sooner than you may- or is that June- think:)
