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.”
