Encouraging students to have safe, healthy summer vacationPublished 6:40pm Monday, May 20, 2013
The majority of area schools will be coming to a close this week. Lockers will be cleared out and binders of old homework will most likely be tossed out like yesterday’s news.
Summer is an exciting time for students, teachers and parents alike. It’s the start of a new season. No more tests or deadlines for two whole months. Congratulations to all parties involved in earning a much-needed break.
We’d like to take this opportunity to not only extend congratulations but to welcome a reminder that even though school is out — rules still apply.
Students we encourage you to be safe this summer. Abide by the law and stay out of trouble. Find summer activities, jobs or camps to participate in to keep your mind and body stimulated. You didn’t work all year in school just to throw it all away this summer, but sitting inside being lazy.
Of course, we realize one of the key words in summer vacation is ‘vacation,’ and we know you’re all ready to have some fun. We congratulate you on a job well done, and hope that your summer is not only filled with fun, exciting memories but also safe and healthy.
