Walking around Centennial, I’ve asked the Bulldogs what their opinion on the ten minute break was. Of course I got a variety of different opinions, but mostly all the thoughts were centralized to one of two sides.

 

The majority of opinions leaned toward all positive comments about the new ten minute break. A lot of the student body said it gives them a break from school work and also gives them time to catch up with some friends. It’s a good balance. A direct quote from one of our students, Isaiah Sandoval, “I really enjoy having a break because my harder classes are first and second hour and it gives me time to rest my brain.” Another student commented, “I like it, gives you time to chill and hangout.” Many students are fond of this productive change.

 

Although many said they liked it, a chunk of students said they didn’t care for where it was placed in the day. It doesn’t come to a surprise that a majority of the senior class have a first hour PA. The seniors, and maybe a few of the juniors, that have a PA get to school for one hour and then have a break right away. Some opinions suggested that the break would be much more effective if it was after 3rd hour. In comparison to fridays, students like it better that the break is after several different classes because it feels like an actual relieving break.
After a semester went by, the break seems to improve and move swiftly. Looking back to the beginning of the year, students would move into break being more chaotic, now it’s more of a leisure break that everyone enjoys. Students quickly started to enjoy the nice, relaxing ten minutes to socialize with friends instead of sitting at a desk. All together, mostly everyone likes the break whether it’s after second period or later. There is no question about the break helping ease our cramped brains and refreshing our day.
