CPHS Students Travel to NYC!

May 9, 2019 No Comments

This year’s NYC Trip was a huge success. 41 students and 4 Chaperones headed to NYC this past week for 3 full days of culture and adventure in The Big Apple. Lead by Mr. Strachan, Mrs. and Mr. Winter, and Mr. Schooley, the group hit everything from The Tenement and Whitney Museums, to Central Park and Times Square, and saw “Ain’t Too Proud”, the story of Motown sensations The Temptations, on Broadway. The final night, the group took in a NY Yankees game in the Bronx, where the Bombers beat Minnesota 6-3. The 5-day 4-night trip allowed the travelers to visit the 911 Memorial, venture to Staten Island by ferry, and take tours of both Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall. Although the weather was forecast to be wet before the trip, we experienced two days of clouds and a beautiful sunny day to take in the Highline Elevate Train Rail Park and walk the Brooklyn Bridge. A highlight of the trip for many was the extensive tour of the United Nations grounds, including both the General Assembly and Security Council Chambers. The students were excellent and seemed to enjoy every minute of their trip.

Mr. Strachan would like to thank the CPHS Administration, the School Board, and the Parents of the students who came on the trip for their support and confidence in such a worthwhile trip. The students will certainly remember all the memories and friendships that were developed on just such an adventure. Experiential education at its best!
