The last bell of the school year can never come soon enough for students waiting for summer vacation. The final toll signifies fun, freedom from the structure of the school day and, for some, weight gain – at least according to a recent study conducted at Marine Elementary.

In 2010 and 2011, students at the school participated in a study to determine if there are significant differences in activity and eating habits during the school days versus summer vacation. Though the sampling was small, data suggested that children gain weight over the summer months possibly due to less structure, less activity, and a change in diet.
