Students looking forward to family
December 20, 2018
Many students at Patrick M. Villano School think that winter break is one of the best parts of the academic year. This year, winter break is from Friday, December 21 through Tuesday, January 1, 2019. This is a time when children are able to be with their families and relax. In fact, spending time with family tops the list of favorite things to do for Pavel Diaz.
“My favorite part is opening presents and hanging out with my cousins. Me and my cousins play Fifa together, we play soccer and football, and they make me laugh,” Diaz said.
Diaz is one of many student at Patrick M. Villano School who want to spend time with family over the break. Many other students at Patrick M. Villano School are traveling to see family.
“The day after Christmas we are going to the beaches of Florida, and we are going to see my great grandpa who I’ve never met before,” sixth grader Mia Worthington said.
Worthington, who is clearly elated for winter break, is traveling to Clearwater Beach, Florida, to meet her 94-year-old grandfather. Sixth grader Hugh Hennessy plans to stay local and spend time with his family.
“During winter break, I want to be able to relax, be thankful for what I got, and to spend more time with my family,” Hennessy said. “ I’m hyped up.”
Hennessy, travels around to different towns in the area to see all of his cousins. Hennessy, like other students and sixth graders at Patrick M. Villano School, enjoys seeing his cousins and having fun with family traditions.
“A tradition I do with my family is we have these glasses of the 12 days of Christmas, and we split up into different groups, and we each get a different glass. We just do it because it’s an activity where we can be loud, and we can spend time all together,” sixth grader Kelly Bonner said.
