Reminiscing on student's spring break activities


by Ryan Eng
As the second marking period drew to a close, students at Scotch Plains Fanwood High School prepared for a much deserved reprieve: spring break. Whether students were staying home watching Netflix, or flying halfway across the world, it was a welcomed vacation from the hassles of school.
Freshman Luke Jones went to Sao Paulo as well as Rio de Janeiro for spring break. Jones and his family toured the city, met with relatives, and enjoyed the wonderful weather at the beach. One of Jones’ favorite sites was the Christ the Redeemer statue, a grand depiction of Jesus Christ that stands 98 feet tall. The statue is regarded as one of the Seven Wonders of the world.
“It was a beautiful country that had many cultural differences than that of America,” said Jones.
Not only did Jones enjoy the sites, but he said the food was wonderful too. While in Brazil, Jones had numerous tasty meals that made the trip that much better.
On the other hand, Matthew Dembiec and Vincent Milano, also freshman at SPF, spent their spring break at home. Despite not venturing to a far away place, the pair of freshman had an equally good week, spending time with loved ones and not worrying about daily homework and grades.
“I got to see my family and play soccer with my friends,” Dembiec said.
Additionally, Dembiec and Milano play for the same travel soccer team, and during spring break they took no days off, training constantly at home and at practice. As the soccer season rolls around, the two freshman want to stay in peak condition.
Both boys thoroughly enjoyed their spring break, playing video games, soccer, and watching movies.
It is safe to say the students of SPFHS enjoyed their spring break whether they were abroad, or here in SPF. Until next year!
