This past Wednesday the seniors got back from their two week long class trip - an amazing time filled with bonding and learning more about each other. The first couple days were spent at Caye Caulker, an island off of the coast of Belize. Here, we spent two days enjoying the beautiful sunshine and crystal clear ocean.
Many of the seniors went snorkeling with sharks or drove golf carts around the island. When asked about the trip, Lauren said, “One of the most exciting experiences I had on the island was playing volleyball on the beach. I also enjoyed swimming in the ocean that was full of starfish and conch shells.”
Towards the end of our trip we drove to Cancun, Mexico, where we got to go Chichen Itza, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. That same day we were able to go to a giant sinkhole. We got to jump into the hole, but you had to be a good swimmer because it was 130 feet deep. Tanner commented, “I jumped off the cliff and it felt exhilarating. When I hit the water it felt like ice, but soon after getting used to the temperature, I found it all worth it.”
These were just a couple amazing activities the seniors did on the class trip, and we definitely will not be forgetting this trip any time soon. A special thanks to our class sponsors and others, including donors, who helped to make this trip possible for our class!
