Summer Plans

What are your summer plans?

Our last show of the school year will be on Friday, June 5.  And while we're off the air for two months, I'll be mixing together a little vacation, paycation and staycation.  Here's how that breaks down:

Beachfront = vacation

Backyard = staycation

Job = paycation

Nocation = schoolcation

What's on your calendar?

    Vacation for most of us Carl! Hitting the beach, Hanging at the mall, and chilling with friends is most of our plans this summer. Some extra cash wouldn't hurt either but mom and dad won't cough it over.

    It sounds like real fun about what everybody in my class would do but yeah yeah...
    All i would do is sit on my bed and read a book (or study)

    May 19, 2009 at 3:34 am |
  9. Jen

    I guess I don't look foward to it.
    Only good thing is that there are no homework!

  10. Juniper

    For me it's staycation.
    I'll also go on a bref vacation to my grandmother's.
    Except that...
    I can do what I like best in my room.
    and that is..........reading! I really love to read.
    and I also like to make things like model airplanes-(-somewhat unusual for a girl isn't it?)

    May 19, 2009 at 3:40 am |
  11. Jen

    come to think about it, I can also watch TV all day long and play computer games!!!:) 🙂 🙂 🙂 😉 😉

  20. Adam

    I'm going to go all-out vacation! My eighth-grade class was supposed to go on a field trip to Washington D. C. this summer, but unfortunately, it was canceled. That won't stop me though, because I'm going to a conference in Grand Rapids, then another one in Milwaukee! To wrap it up, I'm going to Disney World! Although I'm going to enjoy my vacation, I'm going to miss watching CNN Student News. You'd better think of a really good pun to wrap up this year's Student News, Carl!

    May 19, 2009 at 8:45 am |

    May 19, 2009 at 11:00 am |
  50. Jacob

    In my Summer, I am going to play video games and sports! Nothing better than that! I may have a job to do for decent pay. But other than that, I hope not to work much. We need the break from the actual school work, so they better not make school year round!

    May 19, 2009 at 11:01 am |
  51. Seth

    Over the summer I am staying at a campground that I have a permanent site at all summer long.

    May 19, 2009 at 11:01 am |
  52. Jessica

    I'm maybe camping, But because of the horrible economy I won't have a big vacation.................................... But I would like to go to Cedar Point again. (=,,,,

    May 19, 2009 at 11:02 am |
  53. KAtie

    This summer I'm going on vacation and stuff. I'm also going to Cedar Point and the beach like every year. I'll just be hanging out with friends and stuff like that most of the summer. That is what my plans are this summer.

    May 19, 2009 at 11:02 am |
  54. Sarah

    Over the summer, I don't plan to do too much. My friend and I are probably going to go swimming and "tree jumping" (a lot!). We'll catch frogs and turtles and name them and give them their own personalities, claiming them as our own. Then, because I'm kind of a geek, I will probably study for some of the courses for next year and work for my mom to make money. Typical kid stuff, you know?

    May 19, 2009 at 11:02 am |
  55. Heidi

    I've got a definite dream vacation coming my way – Munich, Salzberg, Florence, and Rome. Arrivderci!

  56. Summer

    Well my summer wont be that fun. I have Junior Varsity cheerleading practice during my summer. Grant you i like chee leading, but my summer! Other than that i don't really have anything to do. We might go camping but im not sure. Whats your summer plans Carl?

    May 19, 2009 at 11:02 am |
  57. Geordan

    Well my plans are to play baseball. I'm pretty good besides in warm-ups but i'm the not the best. When I'm not playing baseball I'm sitting at home. Or I will be at a friends house.

    May 19, 2009 at 11:03 am |
  58. McKenzie

    Over the summer I will not be doing anything. Besides hang out with friends and work. Plus swimming! That pretty much sums up my boring summer. OMG SO BORING!!!!

    May 19, 2009 at 11:03 am |
  59. ~*SARAH*~

    I don't think i will be doing anything really. In August I will be at fair. The rest of the time i will be at the summer program for Community Unlimited and possibly babysitting. Also i will probably hang out with my Aunt Nancy and my cousins Diane and Nan. I might get my mom to take me to Chicago or Ohio but i am possibly going to Chicago with the Community Unlimited. Also with them i am spending the night in a zoo. I think that's it except like fishing and stuff like that.

    May 19, 2009 at 11:04 am |
  60. Kyler

    my plans for summer. I think I'm going to stay home all summer. I am just going to sleep. I might work at my dads restaurant.

    May 19, 2009 at 11:04 am |
  61. Chris

    Well I am going to be very very busy this summer. I am going to be doing basically baseball all summer and the days when I don't have baseball, then I will be working in the fields working as de-tasseling for money. Other than that I will just hang at my g-pas house and have fun swimming in his pool and hanging with friends.

    May 19, 2009 at 11:04 am |
  62. Dana

    Wow, where so I even start?!?! I have plans to apply for online classes for Algebra II/Trig, Creative Writing, or World Religion Honors. I'm also traveling around southern Michigan (not a big deal since I live just miles north of Indiana). I also will spend time with family and friends, and have to do lots of work at home, 🙁 and hang around doing nothing. 🙂 This summer will be great (ecxept for the chores)!

    May 19, 2009 at 11:05 am |
  63. Kelsey

    My summer calendar so far is clear, I don't have anything planned really. All I have in store for the summer is a lot of wake boarding and a lot of time spent in the sun!!. I can not wait until summer gets here, I am so excited, mostly because I can sleep in and not go to school. There is one my brother's graduation party, but that is about it. To conclude my summer will be a staycation.

    May 19, 2009 at 11:05 am |
  64. Wyatt

    I'm going to go to Florida for a couple weeks and chill there for a while. Then as soon as I get back I will be playing baseball until like the middle of June. So I can't wait till summer

    May 19, 2009 at 11:05 am |
  65. Alexa

    Hmmmmmm.......I think that I am going to do a lot of saying home and relaxing for the summer. I am probably going to watch my little cousins and hang with my friends. I am going to probably sleep in a lot and spend time with my grandpa and grandma. Maybe even I might go to Chicago? Also play a lot of sports and talk on the phone! :]

    May 19, 2009 at 11:06 am |
  66. Allison

    This summer is going to be righteous! I plan to get very dirty, play king of the raft, hang out with friends (neighbors, BEWARE!), and spend a lot of time up at my grandparents' cottage with family and treat myself to some skin cancer. Summer is going to end very early this year for me since volleyball starts in August, but that just means that I will have the other two months to live it up. Sleep? Yah, right! Wake up at ten in the morning and fall asleep at five in the morning. Have a wonderful summer and rest of the year. CHEERS!!!!!!

    May 19, 2009 at 11:06 am |
  67. Martha

    Well, usually my summer is open and I've got all the free time in the world. However, this year is a different story. Toward the beginning of the summer I have softball. Then at the same time I am detasseling for about a month. At the end, I have volleyball starting. But throughout these minor plans, I am defiantly going to take time out to hang out with all my friends.

    May 19, 2009 at 11:08 am |
  68. mariah

    This summer i plan to go on vacation for 5 to 10 days. Then actually i am working for one in the detassiling then on my days off of that i work bailing hay sounds fun actually it is because while detassling i work with my friends from different schools and while bailing hay, well actually that is how i got that job was through a friend from the high school in battle creek working with their parents in their feild up in ypsilanti. Then after i do that all summer then i get to watch my brother go off to college which is going to be the worst day of my life, watching my brother go.

I am so sick of it...(I wish I could have a paycation...but I cannot drive, therfore I cannot work...) And without school I cant do what I've wanted to do ALL year, sleep, chill, relax and do MY thing on MY time. I also need more time for writing and drawing, so that's what I'll do!
    What about you, Carl?

    I am MANY years out of school, and work full-time year round = no vacation. No sweat, I have a great life and I love my job. The real reason I'm writing is to say that I think CNN student news is the best news program on the air – and as a former news junkie with a Master's Degree in education, I consider that a qualified opinion! You have a brief, balanced, comprehensive glance at the highlights. No frivolously shocking or emotionally gut-grabbing propaganda masquerading as news. I even get a chuckle from most of Carl's puns. I can always get into more depth from countless sources if I want to. I'll miss you over the summer. Thanks Carl, keep up the good work!

    Staycation, we live at the beach, so it's best. I think it's sad that I'm going to school on the memorial day as a make-up day for the fire, and there will be no CNN Student news. 🙁
