Each year, the seniors go on a senior trip in mid-April to explore and see new parts of the United States. The seniors will stop and tour five states: Tennessee, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, and Ohio. The students start fundraising for the trip at the beginning of their freshman year all the way to the end of their junior year.
The anxious seniors were asked to share their thoughts and hopes for the trip.
Elsie McNabb stated, “I'm excited to go to the Statue of Liberty because it's on my bucket list. I'm looking forward to the 9/11 Memorial, because although it'll be sad, it is something that I was alive for in our country's history.”
Claire Laune shared, “I am most excited for New York, the Bus Tour, the 9/11 Memorial, and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.”
“I am looking forward to spending time with my classmates and getting a break from school. I am least looking forward to the long bus rides and early mornings,” mentioned Makenzie Munsinger.
Diana Ribera said, “[At Peking Gourmet,] I [signed up to get] the shrimp fried rice and the lemon chicken because I'm very picky when it comes to food. Even if I want to try new food, some people won't finish all their food so we can split.”
Julia Unnerstall said, “I'm getting orange chicken and rice [at Peking Gourmet]. These menu items are a safe bet to order at a Chinese restaurant-- especially at a Chinese restaurant you've never been to before.”
“[On the bus rides, I am planning on] playing on my friend’s Nintendo Switch and listening to music,” stated Seth Tolar.
“[As a pastime on the bus rides, I will be] listening to music, browsing through Jordans and clothing, looking at the scenery, and taking dummy phat naps,” added Alex Trentmann.
With just one month to go, the seniors are greatly looking forward to their Senior Trip. The seniors have been saving up for this trip since freshman year and it is finally starting to become a reality. The students get to explore some states outside of Missouri and get to enjoy their last months as New Haven High School seniors.
