At last, the seniors are in their final semester at New Haven High School and are preparing for many activities, including the annual senior trip. On April 14th, the senior class will leave for their last, week-long adventure as a class, coming back on the 21st of April. This being the last trip that the 2018 class will take together, it allows the students to connect as young adults, rather than just high school classmates. This trip will allow the current seniors to find friends among each other in places they never thought to look before.
Many of the seniors are looking forward to the sites they will see and the things they will experince during their travels, such as visiting New York, the 9/11 Memorial, going to Broadway, and so many more fun-filled events.
Elizabeth Hughes stated, “I am super excited about senior trip. I am most looking forward to seeing just how large the Biltmore actually is.”
Cody Stanley mentioned, “I’m excited to visit the 9/11 Memorial, and see what their Hollister store has to offer.”
Many students in the past have gotten distracted by the excitement of senior trip and forgotten about the most important thing. What is that thing, you might ask? Well, here’s the answer-- pack! How can you go anywhere without packing? That’s always the first thing you need to think of. Here are a few tips from the sponsors of this year’s senior trip.
Mr. Gortney stated, “I would say pack for all weather conditions and pack/wear comfortable shoes. I know there is a lot of walking involved on this trip.”
Mrs. Hausmann mentioned, “We will be walking a lot, so comfortable shoes are a must!”
Mr. Stutzman stated, “Try to think of everything. Poncho for rain, sweatshirt/ pants for activities in NYC. Extra pair of shoes in case [the] 1st pair gets wet or muddy. Nice clothes for Peking Gourmet and Broadway.”
When asking what everyone is most excited for, most of the 2018 class said that they were excited about having the opportunity to go to New York. But this year the class has an exciting addition. They will be able to go inside the White House as long as they all fill out the information that is required.
Many of the students are excited, and can’t wait till this trip comes closer. But we all must patiently wait to get a break from school for a whole week!
