Mini Day

Mini Day
By Jess Earp
After eight months of homework, tests, a long day of raking, and washing windows, it’s time for you to have some fun! This May, we will be loading a bus and off to a day of fun filled activities. Many new activities have been added to this year’s activity lineup. What will you chose?
For ten years mini day has been an award for those who participated in the community clean up day in April. Previous activities were the Waterpark of America, ice skating and a movie, and Mall of America. Every year new activities are added to enhance the fun. This year the new activity is Valleyfair in place of Mall of America. Other activities are Nybos Bowling and the YMCA, the fishing float, Grand Slam, golfing, and 3rd Layer. Though it is not certain you will get into your first choice activity because of seniority, everyone is bound to have a good time.
This year mini day will be held on Friday, May 21st. The cost of the events varies from $8 to $30. If the individual cannot come up with the money to pay for the event the school will cover it for them. There are restrictions on who may attend this event. Laura Watson, Student Council President explains, “Those who have unexcused absences on community clean-up day may not be able to come. This trip is a reward for all the hard work put into making community clean-up day a success, it wouldn’t be fair for those who skipped to be able to go.”
The student council has worked hard to make this day happen, so as thanks to the hard work put into this day, don’t skip community clean up day and come have a fun at an activity of your choice. May is just around the corner, and with so many events to pick from, it is time to start thinking about what activity you might choose.
