Mid-winter break is a time of relief for some Carlmont students, but others face the stress of planning their club’s schedule to accommodate the break from school.

With many weekly clubs, the school year has already been organized by the leaders in terms of what they will do each session. However, it is difficult to predict every obstacle, so club members have to improvise when faced with challenges.

“Mid-Winter Break didn’t really affect my club’s path negatively, but it did cause me to delay the start of a new project. I generally felt like there were not any big difficulties planning for the break as my club has completed most of the big items that I had planned in our school year. However, I was going to have a guest speaker come over for the week of the Mid-Winter Break,” said Cindy Chen, a sophomore and president of the Hope Brigade Club.

Although not a substantial problem, Chen had to adjust her plans for her club on the week of the break. The adjustments were small but still ended up affecting Chen’s original plan.

However, for some clubs, Mid-Winter Break does not diminish the schedule, but rather enhances the productivity.

“Since the meetings happen to fall around the break, it had actually made it easier to go to volunteering events,” said Chloe Palarca-Wong, a member of the PAW Club.

In this club, members who are passionate about the welfare and the right of animals participate in volunteering and fundraising events for animals.

Mid-Winter Break happened to fit perfectly around their schedule, allowing them to take part in the club activities outside of school, which ultimately benefited the club.

This has disturbed our ability to work and plan as a club collectively, but we have been able to work alone and will hopefully meet again soo.”

“In Hope Brigade this quarter we’ve been working on making friendship bracelets for children in hospitals, and we’ve been missing meetings due to circumstances like Mid-Winter Break. This has disturbed our ability to work and plan as a club collectively, but we have been able to work alone and will hopefully meet again soon,” said Jordan Lin, another member of the Hope Brigade club.
