What are you doing for spring break?

This week is spring break for Colchester students! 

Though you're probably spending this long-awaited break at home, tell us, how are you making it fun? Where are you hiking and biking? What crafts are you doing? Recipes are you baking? Are you traveling somewhere in-state?

Show us how you are spending this spring stay-cation by sending photos and a few sentences to news@colchestersun.com. We can't wait to see what you're up to!
