Hampton students are going to get off of school for winter break from December. 22nd through January 3rd.
Lots of students and staff have plans with their family over break.
“I celebrate Hanukkah by going to my aunt and uncle’s house,” said. Mrs. Stock, a third-grade teacher at Hampton. “We have a nice dinner, exchange presents, and then have a Jewish dessert called sufganiyot (jelly-filled donuts with powdered sugar on top). I celebrate Christmas on December 25th. My wife and I exchange gifts with each other and give our dogs their presents on Christmas morning. For dinner, we go to my wife’s mom’s house and exchange gifts with her.”
Lots of students are going to spend their time doing things that they enjoy.
“I’m going to play Fortnite over the whole break,” said Dane A
Students and staff are happy about winter break because you get to miss school for 11 and a half days and relax for a while.
“The first part of the school year was tiring because I taught, helped with the play, helped with Battle of the Books, and finished two graduate school classes. I am ready for some rest and relaxation during winter break! Although, I will miss my students,” Mrs. Stock said.
Whether celebrating holidays, traveling, or just relaxing, the Hampton Elementary School Community is definitely excited for winter break.
