Edition 2011, #15 - A Late Easter Break

A Late Easter Break
by Khadijah J

We at the Eagle Way wondered why Spring break was so late this year.
Kh: "Mrs.Spells. Why is spring break so late this year?"

Principal Spells: "Catholic schools take Easter week off. It begins with the Monday after Easter. Instead of spring break we call it Easter break. Public schools call it spring break. Catholic schools call it Easter week because it always begins the day after Easter."

One of the minuses about late Spring break is that some children in public schools might already be back in school. We students at St. Ethelreda won't, and we may not be able to go out with our friends. The pluses about late Spring break are that we can get more rest and get more things done around the house. I am happy when Spring break comes. I won't have to wake up to go to school, and it gives me time to do fun things.

Thank you, Principal Spells, for allowing me to interview you and take up your time.

  1. Khadijah, thank you for asking the question that was on every student's mind. The faculty and staff decided to keep Easter Week instead of taking a spring break and a four day weekend for Easter when we discussed calendar dates last June. Besides, when we return to school, there will be only five weeks left in this school year.
