Recently we surveyed 368 middle school students on how they spent the 2012 Spring Festival. 30% said they spent most of their time with their parents visiting relatives and friends while 25% went traveling with classmates or parents. 45% of all those surveyed indicated that they just stayed at home to do homework. When asked how they felt about the Spring Festival, most said they enjoyed it because of the holiday and lucky money they got, but some felt unhappy because the amount of homework they were given left little time for fun activities. Many students expressed the hope that next year they will have less homework and more free time.

I’ve just received your email expressing your concern that I am being distracted from my studies because of my many after-school activities and the consequences of this for my future.
(or: I’ve just received your email expressing your concern about my participation in so many after-school activities, the effect of this on my study performance and its consequences for my future.)
I appreciate what you say and am sorry to have caused you so much worry. I’m also touched that you understand my reasons for being attracted to such activities.
It is true that I have been spending a lot of time with these groups but please don’t worry. I find that these groups help me to relax, develop my thinking, and actually improve my school performance, although my teacher is right that I do sometimes feel tired in class.
For this reason, and to also relieve you of your worry, I have decided to limit my participation to only two groups this term. This way I can still enjoy the outside activities without it affecting either you or my study performance.
