Summer 2012: What are Your Plans?
Friday was the last day of school for District 181, and Patch wants to know what's next for Hinsdale and Clarendon Hills families: Play dates? Pool time? Summer Camp? Tell us!
My dad has always said that summer vacation officially ends on the last non-holiday weekday before kids head back to school. Since we in Minnesota started the Tuesday after Labor Day, the last day of summer was the Friday before.
"You'd get the other days off anyway," he says.
According to my dad's theory, Monday is the first day of summer for District 181 families, since school got out Friday and the weekend doesn't count.
Patch wants to know what's going on in Hinsdale and Clarendon Hills between now and Aug. 22, the last day of District 181 summer.
Is there a summer camp your kids go to? A sport that they play?
I want to know what summer traditions are special to residents, what classes are the best for their kids, and what places—in Hinsdale, Clarendon Hills, and elsewhere—are the best spots to hit during the vacation days. (Brookfield Zoo, anyone?)
Tell me in the comments what your plans are this summer and where I should be to best capture the spirit of the season.
Happy summer, everyone!
