As the buds of flowers bloom and the weather gets warmer, Harrisites are preparing to enjoy eleven days off during the longest break of the school year. From thrilling plans to moments of relaxation, Harrisites are ready for the upcoming spring break. 

Some plan on traveling over the break. Freshman Vanessa Lee said, “I’m going to Seattle to visit my dad because he works there. He makes airplanes, and so I’m excited to visit.”

Others find themselves busy with various activities. Sophomore Sarna Paul said, “I need to choreograph dances for my sister’s wedding. I’m going to have to create around ten dances before the wedding and reception. I’ll also spend time with friends and family and might visit the city, but nothing is guaranteed just yet.”

Amidst the break, Harrisites also find themselves balancing academic commitments with leisurely activities. Some decide to take a break from the usual rigorous school days. 

Freshman Tashfia Mahmud said, “I plan on hanging out with my friends a lot, but during the last few days, I have to focus and study. I’m also going to be volunteering at an elderly center near my house as well.” 

Similarly, Senior Hira Malik said, “I’ll be hanging out with my cats and volunteering at the animal shelter.” 

Other Harrisites plan on visiting college campuses to prepare themselves for the college admissions process. 

Junior Bryan Wang said, “I plan on visiting college campuses in New York and neighboring states. I hope that visiting campuses gives me a better understanding of the type of college I want to enroll in.” 

Likewise, Junior Alyanna Prasad said, “I’m going to visit colleges in Boston in the beginning of spring break. Then, I’m going to celebrate my birthday.” 

Harrisites plan to balance productivity with relaxation to make the most of the break. Dedicating time for work during the break helps to stay on top of academic responsibilities. 

With the upcoming AP exams, Harrisites plan on studying alongside getting rest. Sarna added, “I plan on studying for my APs and Regents so I know the content I’m going to be tested on. I plan to relax and not over-exert myself, but I also want to dedicate a certain amount of time to my work.” 

Other Harrisites are planning on implementing schedules to stay productive during the break. Junior Apurbo Haider said, “I plan on getting ready for the upcoming AP season and to hopefully make up for some lost sleep over this break. I’m going to try to schedule a day to study for each AP Exam to make sure I don’t procrastinate. I’m excited to be able to get more sleep these days.”

Many students are prioritizing their sleep and being able to recharge over the break. 

Sophomore Anderson Persad said, “I’ll probably spend time with my friends and family and just make up any work I have leftover.” 

Senior Matthew Xu said, “I’m not doing much over the break, maybe hanging out with my grandparents since they came over from China.”

Vanessa said, “I’m just going to make sure I get a lot of rest because on school days, I usually don’t. During the break, I want to make sure to rest so I have energy for everything.” 

Similarly, sophomore William Algenio said, “Over the break, I plan to rest and relax for the few months of school we have left. After a difficult year, I need time for myself to prepare for the upcoming months of school.”
