Arbor Annie's End of Winter Break Weekend Picks - January 3-5

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks January 3-5

Winter Break ends on Sunday and everyone’s schedule returns to normal when school resumes on Monday. 

Arbor Annie's End of Winter Break Weekend Picks - January 3-5

Our schedule has been very unusual for the last two weeks – I hardly remembered which day of the week it was. With school resuming on Monday, it is back to our normal routine. It’s a good time to refresh the school calendar in your memory. AAPS has school on President’s Day, but not the Presidential Primary. There’s also a half-day in February.

Arbor Annie’s End of Winter Break Weekend Picks

This weekend, the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum wraps up their Hands-On Holidays. It is also a great weekend to explore the campus area with students gone – at least on Friday and Saturday. Check out the campus museums or Pinball Pete’s. Driving my daughter and a friend to Pinball Pete’s we definitely noticed all the families out around the campus area on Friday.

Do you have a Christmas Tree to dispose of this year? We’ve got a list of Christmas Tree Disposal options for those with live trees. Remember, the City of Ann Arbor no longer offers curbside pickup.
