Last Wednesday, September 21st, students and teachers from Henderson Bay kicked off the school’s first field trip by “doing the Puyallup.” Fifty students boarded buses promptly at 10:00 A.M. to ride to Puyallup for a day full of fun, sunshine and unforgettable memories. This was my first time attending the fair in nearly four and a half years of living in Washington State. I can now see why my friends are excited each year to attend the state fair. The fair was definitely a day to remember and will be a memory treasured for a long time in different ways for everyone.
What Students Are Saying About the Fair: “I had fun being with my friends and enjoyed the earthquake burger fries.” -Ashlyn
“The rides were cool. Everything was open and fast paced. I was there all day and enjoyed my time there.” -Taylor
The results are in! Your votes were tallied and counted and this is what students and teachers most enjoyed about the fair! 36% of voters most enjoyed the zipper ride, 55% best enjoyed the rides and 45% thought that elephant ears was the best fair food. Be sure to look out for our next poll. If you didn’t vote this time there will be a next time to cast your votes, so stay tuned!
Henderson Bay is well-known for being one of the most unique schools in the Peninsula District, allowing students to express themselves. Our school has monthly field trips, which I think is an incredible thing for students to bond and connect. Coming from a school with over 1,600 students (as much pride I had being a Tide at Gig Harbor High), taking a monthly field trip was entirely out of the question. From what students and staff are saying, it’s clear that everyone who attended the field trip to the Puyallup Fair enjoyed their time there and can’t wait for next month’s field trip.
