Plans for Spring Break?

Our spring break was last week, and we did absolutely nothing. :P.

Have your kids had spring break yet?  If so, did you do anything fun?  If not, do you have anything planned?

Ours was last week also.  The middle one in Kindergarten went back to the daycare for the week into the school agers room and did a few field trips that kept her busy and happy.  The senior in high school rested, relaxed (not enough though) and worked on some painting and a research paper and we went prom dress shopping.   Back to the grind and chaos this week. Is it summer yet???

That's interesting that some of the 'Spring Breaks' have occurred already. Do your kids get any time off before or after Easter too?

Mine got a week off for Mardi Gras last week and will get next week off (plus the Monday after Easter). We went on vacation for the Mardi Gras break so we don't have any plans for next week!

Lisa, our Spring break doesn't ever correspond to easter, it corresponds to near the end of the 9 weeks and we get out at the end of May, so other than MLK and Presidents day, its our only real break between Christmas and the end of the year. We do get Good Friday off of school, but its also a designated bad weather make up day, so if for some reason we need to make up a day, theoretically they could use that day to fill the need. In Michigan they usually have a mid winter break in February, either an entire week off or a 4-5 day long weekend and then a week either before or after Easter for spring break. But they also go to school through mid-June. I actually like the Texas schedule better, they have very minimal days off to have to find a sitter and they get out earlier in the summer.

Our spring break isnt for another month which is great since we still have snow on the ground!!! We get a week off in February and a week off in April. We get out in late June which is fine with me since its not so much a great summer break if you are out when its still chilly out. Generally doesn't start to feel like summer until late June.

No plans this year, DS is having surgery in a week so we will be recovering. Hoping by then he is pretty much on the mend but we shall see
