Eighth-Graders Will Cruise on June 12
The class votes on its end of the year trip.
Eighth graders at Westborough’s Gibbons Middle School will take an evening cruise together in June.
The class “overwhelmingly” voted to have a Spirit of Boston evening cruise as its end of the year trip, School Superintendent Marianne O’Connor told the school committee Wednesday night.
The students chose this option over a Spirit of Boston day cruise or a trip to the Warren Center, O’Connor said.
The results were announced Tuesday, she said.
However, parents will receive information that the June 12 trip “is not a mini-prom,” O’Connor said.
“This is not a ‘girls dressed up and the boys dressed up.’ This is a casual affair for kids to come out,” she said.
“Everybody will be required to ride the bus, and everybody will be required to go home on the bus.”
