We made it through a very difficult and demanding year; we have a few scars and bruises, but we are quite proud of our achievements. Each member of this school community—students, teachers, staff, parents, and other family members all deserve a gold star for their efforts this year. Hurrah!
Although summer is traditionally a time of relaxation and fun, remember that learning should never end, no matter the season or age. So, here are a few suggestions for you to continue with your education during this school break.
First of all, write something creative each day. Why not begin writing in a daily journal. This is a wonderful way to keep track of the fun activities that you enjoy, the trips you take, or the emotions that you need to release. Letters or full length emails to family and friends are great ways to keep in contact with others. Try to write some poetry as you sit outside in nature, or let your imagination run wild and come up some wild stories about magical creatures.
Next, you should read as much as you can. The key to good writing is reading a lot of things that are written by very good authors. The libraries are open again and are great sources for finding books and magazines that interest you. Best of all, the books are free to read. Besides the books, libraries traditionally have summer activities that are geared to students of all ages. Check them out. Take a chance and read a genre that is new to you, an author you haven’t read before, or about a topic that excites you.
Learn new things and share your knowledge with others. Step out of your comfort zones and be academically daring. You will be surprised at how wonderful that can be. Stay safe. Pray each day. Be thankful for all your blessings. Be kind. God bless.
