Did you know that Mauro - Sheridan students are going to Disney World in May for a week? Also did you know that that Mauro-Sheridan has been going for the past six years?
But not every student gets to go. Just the 8th graders get to go but in order for them to go they need a C or a better grade. They also have to pay $925.
Every year the cost changes. Last year it was $900. The money is used to pay for the hotel. the trip includes the tickets for the four parks named: Magic Kingdom, DIsney Hollywood Studio, Epcot and Animal Kingdom. It also includes airfare and meals.
Disney is a lot of fun, it’s also teaches you things and connects with the magnet theme. It connects with the magnet theme because Disney World teaches things like science and technology. Ms. Gallagher said, “Students participate in a program called the YES program, which teaches them about Science, Physics, and force and how engineers use science to build roller coasters.”
Do you know what EPCOT means? It stands for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. It is one of the parks the students will visit to explore science and technology.
“Every day we go to a different park. The hottest park is the Animal kingdom,” Mrs. Canzanella said.
Students are looking forward to different aspects of the trip. “I’m most excited about seeing all the delicious food!” Said Julian Lewis, 8th grade. “I am happy to go Disney because I can chill with my friends. I am also looking forward to going on the roller coaster named the Tower of Terror.”
Jevaughn Henry 8th grade said, ”I’m happy because I get have a vacation with my friends. I’m also looking forward to going on the Tower of Terror.”
The Tower of Terror is one of the rides that are part of the YES program. The 8th graders will get to learn about some of the science behind building roller coasters.
Coree Bellamy 8th grader said “ I’m excited to go to the hotel. I’m happy to be going to Disney because I haven’t been to Disney in a few years.”
“I'm most excited about seeing Mickey Mouse and going on roller coasters. I’m also happy about going to Disney because I get to hang out with my friends. I’m mostly looking forward to going on any ride,” said Brooke Jensen
Many of are students are excited about going on the roller coasters and eating all the delicious food. We all know that the students are going to come back learning about science and how people build roller coasters.
