    The trip was very fun. The

    rides were awesome. We tried

    The Simpsons and Mummy Rides.

    We took The Studio Tour which

    was amazing. We saw how they

    make movies. I would like to

    spend time over there again.

    (Tucker Frazier, 6A)

    It was so fun. We first

    watched Shrek 4-D and it was

    so much better than 3-D.

    Later we took The Studio Tour

    and saw the sets of movies. I

    liked the Mummy Ride because

    it was so exciting. We also

    saw the Water World show.

    There were jet skis and big

    explosions and it was like a

    real 3-D movie. The Simpsons

    Ride was awesome too. So, we

    had lots of fun. I love Uni-

    versal Studios.

    (Francis Russo, 6A)

    We enjoyed Universal Studios


  • Overall, it was

    a trip worth taking

    and going on again.

    Students received a

    free parking pass for

    a future trip with their

    families. They also

    took with them an

    opportunity to see

    some of the finest art

    that California has to


    . On Fri-day, January 22nd, MSA-4 had a field trip to the J. Paul Getty Center in Los Angeles. Even though it was a

    rainy day it did not slow down the stu-dents from getting an opportunity to see what the Getty Cen-ter had to offer.

    Due to the rain students had to start their trip eating their lunches on the buses. Once they finished they made their way to the tram that took them to the museum. The stu-

    dents enjoyed the scenic views while they ascended uphill.

    Once the stu-dents excited the tram, students were broken up into groups with different chaper-ones and their tour began. Each group went a separate route and all had a different experience at the Getty. Mr. Plonkas group traveled at a high pace trying to see all four wings and even took time to en-joy the scenic views and landscaping of the Getty. The stu-dents definitely slept well that night.
