Memorial Day to Provide a Much-Needed Break

Jude Wilkenfeld
Many use Memorial Day weekend as an opportunity to go to the beach.

With either half the students out for AP/IB exams or nobody in class at all because of state testing, the last couple weeks have had classrooms and hallways looking very different from what Barons are used to. 

As students wrap up these odd weeks B-CC and say goodbye to the Class of 2024, many are looking forward to Memorial Day. Some students are using the weekend to stay home and relax after all those exams, and others are off to a sandy destination. 

Junior Mattie Weiss said, “I am excited to have that one extra day—it doesn’t seem like a lot, but it definitely feels like a lot after how stressful junior year has been.” Weiss added, “I can’t wait to sleep in, maybe hang out with my friends, but unfortunately I will be doing some work because the school year is not over quite yet.”

For many students, this weekend is the chance to escape for a moment before coming back and finishing the final stretch of the school year. Junior Lucy Stone said, “I am headed to Front Royal, Virginia where my family has a house and I know a lot of friends who are going to Bethany Beach this weekend.” Being out of town, especially around this time of year, can be relaxing for many reasons. Stone said, “I am finally done with all my exams and just getting a change of scenery will help take my mind off of school for a little while.”

On the other hand, for many students this week is cause for celebration: seniors have just finished their final official days of school and are getting a head start on summer break. Senior Mary Sheffield said, “It’s sort of bittersweet, but I am excited to spend time with my friends this weekend and celebrate this accomplishment.”

Regardless of how one chooses to spend the weekend, it is a well-earned opportunity for restoration and relaxation.
