Students look forward to summer from the first day of school. Many people like to get away from home to relax after a long school year. Hot vacation spots for students at Glenelg include Ocean City, Maryland, the Outer Banks in North Carolina, and beaches all over Florida. Sophomore Jared Thomas stated, “I'm so excited to go to the Outer Banks this summer with my friends. The beach is so relaxing. It's a perfect break from sports and school”. Thomas further explained how he's heard of so many people around the school talking about going to Ocean City this summer. Junior Michael Forester mentioned, “Ocean City is going to be a busy place this summer. I love seeing so many people from school down there it makes it so fun”. If Ocean City is in your agenda this summer you should expect to see many familiar faces.
The entertaining part of summer is being able to leave the state and experience something new and interesting. Students in Howard County always talk about extravagant trips they go on to different countries. Junior Lily Discepolo explained, “My family went to Italy last year and it was the best week of my life. This year we planned a trip to Africa and I am beyond excited for it. We've got safari adventures and so much fun stuff planned”. She went on about how awesome it is to visit other countries and see how different people’s lifestyles are. Whether you are traveling in America or abroad, getting away for a nice vacation is always a great time.
