(Winter) Break It Down

Many GOA students use winter break as a time to relax, rejuvenate and spend quality time with family and friends. While some go away on exciting vacations, others stay at home and catch up on sleep. A handful of GOA students were asked what their favorite part of their 2015 winter break was.

"This winter break, I went to Florida and stayed at my uncle's house. I really liked swimming in my uncle's pool with my dad and brother!"
-Emma Weiss '17

"My favorite part of winter break was being able to sleep and take a break from the school work that I'm usually overwhelmed with. After coming back from winter break, I feel relaxed and ready to take on the next portion of the year."
-Alissa Lampert '18

"I went to go see School of Rock on Broadway with my family. It was so much fun!"
-Itai Rekem '19

“This winter break, I went to London to go see my family. The highlight of the trip was making a music video with my little cousins. It’s always fun to act like a little kid again!”
-Hannah Greenwald ‘16

"This winter break I went to see a Broadway show and spent time with friends. I wasn't thinking about school assignments which allowed me to feel more relaxed."
-Mathan Poller '17

"My family usually chickens out of going on vacations during the breaks and we normally stay at home or go to Ohio to visit my grandparents. This year, I convinced my parents that we should go on a real vacation because this would be our last opportunity before I leave for college. We travelled to Savannah, Georgia. My family and I were able to relax while visiting many popular sights and tourist attractions."
- Veronica Slater '16

"At the start of break, I went into New York City with my best friends to celebrate my 17th birthday. Then, I went to the USY International Convention where I saw many friends that I hadn't seen in months. It was nice catching up with them and meeting lots of new people!"
- Mikayla Talmud '17

"I traveled to Florida with my family and got to play volleyball at the home of the National Beach Volleyball Tournaments. It was an amazing opportunity that I will never forget."
