It is officially spring! Ms. Hrabosky helped her English students hop into spring by learning about the vernal equinox which happened last Friday. During the vernal equinox, day and night have equal length. The position of the sun causes this to happen. During an equinox, the sun’s rays shine perpendicular to Earth. There are only two equinoxes per year. One occurs in March (the vernal equinox) and the other in September (the autumnal equinox). Students wrote about their favorite season, spring or winter, on cute little spring cut outs to help decorate the classroom with pastel colors and thoughtful responses reflecting on the change of seasons.
