My daughter's school always did a 5th grade trip, usually to the beach. It was something special for the 5th graders since they would be graduating and heading over to the Middle school. That is until last year. Last year my daughter's school had a different principal, it was her first and only year at the school and she stopped the 5th grade class trip. She didn't think they were necessary! It was sad.
This year we got a new principal, one which I love. She's my daughter's old vice principal, she had been in the school for the first 3 years my daughter attended, and all of the kids and parents loved her. So now she's back as principal and she has reinstated the 5th grade class trip :) Although it's not the beach, the kids will be heading to the movies tomorrow to see the Chimpanzee movie, my daughter is so excited!
Have I mentioned I am really glad the old principal is gone!!! lol
So does your school do 5th grade class trips? or class trips in general?
