Since the colonization of America, Boston has been a city rich with culture. It is the home of the Boston Tea Party, the first U.S. chocolate factory, and the first public beach. Perhaps what makes Boston so unique are the activities people can participate in such as walking the Freedom Trail or watching the Red Sox play on their home field at Fenway Park. Mrs. Angelillo and Mrs. Polo, advisors of Student Coalition, are giving members of their club the opportunity to experience this famous city.

At the end of every school year, the members of Student Coalition are given the chance to go on a trip somewhere in the United States for a few days as a way of giving back to the students for putting in community service and working to improve the school. The trip must be deemed both educational and fun. Two years ago, the club went to Virginia and last year Washington D.C. In order to be able to go on the end of the year trip, students must have completed their required community service hours.

This coming May, the club is making their way to Boston, Massachusetts. The itinerary for this trip includes eating dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe, touring historic Boston, going to the Salem Witch Museum, bowling, and even going to Six Flags in New England. There is a $100 deposit due January 12, 2018, which secures a spot on the trip. The entire cost of the trip is $525. Going on this trip is a way to spend time with friends and learn some history about Boston while still having fun.
Students who aren’t members of the club can always join and, as long as they have community service hours and participate in the club for the remainder of the year, have a good shot at going on the next trip.
Student Coalition meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month and they usually take place in the small cafeteria. For students who are interested, there are permission slips in the office. Get ready for a weekend of fun!
