    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

The Easter “To-do” List

Every year here at Scholastica, we are given the wonderful gift of having a very long Easter Break.  Believe it or not, most schools only get Friday off.  Some, like our UMD neighbors, don’t even get that!  So, during your Easter festivities, I challenge you to try to live up your break as much as possible and try some activities and holiday fun that you may have never done before.  I compiled a little list for you, and I know there is no way anyone could do all of these in one Easter.  Pick and choose some of your favorites!


  • Participate in a city-wide Easter egg hunt
  • Snag a younger sibling or relative and color Easter pictures
  • Dye Easter eggs (the traditional way)
  • Make homemade chocolate bunnies
  • Eat every variety of Peeps
  • Create your own Easter egg hunt in your backyard or basement
  • Watch “Easter Egg Morning” and “Family Circus Easter”
  • Go to an Easter Vigil Mass
  • Watch “The Passion” (great movie…makes me cry everytime)
  • Create your own Easter basket
  • Paint Easter eggs using food coloring
  • Visit Easter Island!! (I wish!)
  • Buy a new Easter outfit
  • Dress up like the Easter bunny and hand out candy to your cousins and siblings
  • Make egg and bunny decorations to hang around your living space
  • Prepare an Easter feast on Sunday to celebrate
  • Paint or draw an Easter inspired picture
