Washington, CT - This past May, the Class of 2011 took a well-deserved break from academics to celebrate all of their hard work and accomplishments in sunny Orlando, Florida. Accompanied by three staff, nine members of the senior class visited Walt Disney World for four days of rides, fireworks, food, and fun!

The Disney adventure began with a jaunt to Epcot Center to watch one of the theme park's mesmerizing light shows. The group then visited Hollywood Studios, where George Lucas enthusiasts were delighted to find themselves surrounded by battalions of storm troopers during the park's weekend-long Star Wars celebration. After going on all of their favorite rides at Magic Kingdom and exploring Animal Kingdom, the group cooled off on the water slides at Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach.

When the group returned to campus, they raved about their time at Disney. One student told staffthat it was the best trip he had ever gone on. As a special tradition for Glenholme seniors, the Disney trip is the perfect way to celebrate the end of high school and the beginning of countless new possibilities!
