As of Wednesday October 12th, the senior class has officially kicked off their year as the “SLA Class of 2012” with their senior class breakfast at the Hard Rock Cafe. This was the first of several senior class events, which were the focus of the meeting October 17th.
This year, the senior trip will be at the Split Rock Resort and Golf Club (in the Poconos), which includes and indoor water park and will take place in February around Valentine’s Day.
“Our objective is to empty the building at one time”, said Martin. The senior class was given two options for the trip. The first option was to spend one day at Split Rock, including one meal. Seniors would be leaving at 7 am from school
and will be home around 10 or 11 that night.
This trip option would price out to be around $75.00. Out of the approximate 40 seniors in the room at this time there was mixed emotion about the price, but were curious about option two.
Then, the second o
ption was given: an overnight trip to Split Rock, including two meals (dinner and breakfast) and 4-6 in each room. Everyone would check out at noon the following day.
This would be at least double the price of option one, including the price for the bus driver who would be taking seniors home the next day.
Senior Marquis Simmons asked whether students on the overnight trip will get to pick their roommates. Ms. Martin explained that there will be some freedom with roommates. Martin expressed that roommates could be chosen if they filled the room (had 4-6), but could not be Co-ed.
The only issue was what would be included on the back. Martin and Bey expressed that everyone would have the same back and that there would be no special design changes. Some people wanted SLA somewhere on it, but still including their name and the people of the 2012 class.
