Spring Break:  An Opportunity for Learning

Spring Break for Roxbury Public Schools means students will have almost a week to relax, re-energize, and get some rest.  But it’s also an opportunity for parents to maximize family time and extend the learning of their students.

I encourage you to take advantage of local learning opportunities such as the Roxbury Township Library’s Mini-Maker Camp.  You can also go on day trips for your children to local trails, museums, aquariums, the Charles O. Hayford State Fish Hatchery in Hackettstown and historical places, where you are not only spending time with your children but you are enriching their learning.

The conversations you have with your children during such trips are just as important as the trip itself.  Whether it is asking why fish at the aquarium you are visiting have such bright colors or asking about how a rock gained a certain shape that they might see when you are walking or hiking; you are stimulating your child’s curiosities and helping him or her explore new horizons.

Spring Break can be more than a time of sleeping late every morning and being bored all day because there is nothing fun to do.  

By having real life experiences, you can enhance your child’s student learning, motivation, and success in school.  Whether you are cooking meals together, talking about the books you have read or want to read, playing board games such as UNO, Checkers, or Scrabble, and even taking pictures of the week for a scrapbook, you are helping us educate, inspire, challenge, and support the children we are preparing to be lifelong learners.
