Snow days are loved by all! Woodgrove staff and students share the perfect way to overcome cabin fever and spend a snow day. Most can appreciate the advantages of waking up later. Senior Gabby Stewart says, “My ideal snow day is one where they tell you about it the night before so you can go to sleep knowing you don’t have school tomorrow… I would love to just sleep.” 

 

With the arrival of cold weather, it’s important to bundle up. Junior Ashley Guevara’s perfect snow day is “sitting in my living room with the fire going and watching TV with hot cider and lots of blankets, and then going out to play with my dogs in the snow.” She isn’t the only one who uses these days off to enjoy time with their beloved pets. Woodgrove’s Social Science Teacher Mr. Matthew Talboo likes to “hook the dog up to her little sled and take her in the back, and this 60 pound dog takes my daughter and they go flying through the snow.” 

 

While some love to spend the day cuddled up by the fire, others love to ski and snowboard. Other outdoor activities include building an igloo, sledding, snow ball fights, or making snow angels. Woodgrove’s Physics Teacher Mrs. Erin Barrett says, “I love sledding,” and her perfect snow day is spent shoveling. “I’m an active person, so I enjoy it. It’s rewarding.”

Homebodies don’t feel left out — observing the winter wonderland from the comfort of your own home is important too. Sophomore En’Dia Uddin shares her ideal snow day: “Pajamas, sleeping, watching movies, hot cocoa, and hanging out with family.” Barrett enjoys “baking, if I can, and watching a movie.” Additional ideas for how to utilize time at home is reading, crocheting, board games, yoga, painting, or journaling. 

 

Snow days also provide time with family. Talboo says, “It’s … really important to be able to just be with your family.” 

 

Students and staff of Woodgrove are excitedly awaiting upcoming snow days to spend time with family and friends and enjoy winter hobbies. Seeing snow fall is such a happy, nostalgic experience. Guevara says, “The view out my window when it’s snowing is great, and it’s my favorite thing to wake up and see.”
