than 35 students attended bay area trip
The annual eighth grade spring trip to the Bay Area was May 1-4, and 36 students attended, as well as six parents and three teachers. The purpose of the trip is to get students to start thinking about what they might be interested in doing after high school, for college and work, by exposing them to two major universities, U.C. Berkley and Stanford, and visiting numerous interactive museums emphasizing maritime history, natural history, the sciences, and technology.
