Hello, Please be advised that no school trips will be approved during the month of June. Thank You
Now this seems to be a direct order unless you’re principal Jimenez and want to ride the rollercoasters at Great Adventures on city time. Check out
School Trips are an excellent add on to enhancing a lesson when used for educational means. For example, teaching a lesson on immigration and then visiting Ellis Island. Unfortunately for Mr. Jimenez the trip to Great Adventures had no educational value especially on a professional development day. So simply stated the students on the trip learned nothing, the teachers at the school learned nothing, but Mr. Jimenez got to be like the pig in the GEICO commercials screaming Weeeeeeeeeeee as he rode the rollercoaster with that goofy looking hat.
