Students graduating in the Class of 2018 have the exciting opportunity to go on a class trip to “the Happiest Place on Earth” on Feb. 3. Through the hard work of senior class and ASB officers as well as administration, ASB advisor Elaine Snodgress, and senior class advisors, the idea of a final senior trip has finally been achieved. “It is an awesome feeling that something I have been dreaming about since freshman year could actually become a reality and benefit the entire senior class and other classes to come,” said ASB President Lara Khanjian.

Tickets for the Disneyland trip were sold at the top of the amphitheater from Jan. 8 to Jan. 19 for $95 each. ASB has sold 96 tickets and is looking forward to taking seniors on the trip. Although there is no limit on how many students can go on the trip, ASB will not be selling any tickets after Jan. 19. Students will take the bus to Disneyland, leaving Clark at 7 a.m. in the morning and leaving Disneyland at 10 p.m. “The trip to Disney is really exciting for me not so much because it’s Disney, but more so because it’s an opportunity to spend a fun day with friends that I won’t see much after graduation,” said senior Norik Margaryan.

Although previous years were unsuccessful in their attempts to have an end-of-the-year field trip for the graduating class, the new principal, Lena Kortoshian, has been supportive of the idea and is glad that seniors will have one last chance to go somewhere and have fun together. “The ASB officials and senior class advisors did all of their research and presented us with an idea that was very well-organized and planned out,” Kortoshian said. “A Grad Nite would not be possible for us since teachers are off-duty after graduation, but I love the idea of our students having more fun activities together, and I am glad that we can change the culture here into something more students enjoy.”

According to Khanjian, the junior class has been talking about how they want to make the trip a tradition and go when they are seniors. “It sounds like if our trip is successful, then it will continue, but it is up to the junior class to organize it all,” Khanjian said.
