Washington, CT -  Glenholme’s 2009 senior class embarked on their traditional trip to Disney World in May. The six-student and two-staff group spent four nights at the Disney All-Sport Resort and spent five days exploring the exciting sites throughout the park. From sunrise to sunset, the 2009 class adventurers packed their days with thrilling rides, fabulous food, and fun in the Florida sun, creating many memorable moments along the way.

Glenholme’s traditional trip to Disney World celebrates the many amazing achievements of the senior class. They depart Glenholme accomplished in academics, arts and other intellectual pursuits and embark on a promising future of furthering their academics, employment, or the passion for their life’s pursuits.

This year’s Disney World trek took the Glenholme adventurers to all of the Disney parks including Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, EPCOT and Disney Hollywood. One hot day, they found solace at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park, which offered amazing slippery thrills for everyone with one of the world’s tallest free-falling water slides.

Exhausted from their exciting Disney adventure, the students expressed appreciation for the opportunity to spend a week “in the Kingdom.” Building lasting bonds, these adventurers have a great experience and many fond memories to enjoy for a lifetime.

Next year’s senior class trip offers promise of another excitement packed adventure.
