If you think that the middle school students of Shepherd are acting a little more peculiar than they normally do (which is pretty hard to top!), then you are probably right. The reason for this sudden problematic problem of peculiarity is that the seventh and eighth graders will soon depart for a trip to Washington D.C.!!! Not only are those going on the trip excited, but those who aren’t going are excited as well. This group mainly consists of the rest of middle school, who will most likely be glad to see the seventh and eighth graders off so that they can take over.
They will only be able to take over for a few days, though, as this terrific trip will be from March 13th to the 17th. Mr. Bradley and Mrs. Shoaf will be the expedition leaders, and several willing parents will be acting as chaperones. Mr. Bradley has stated numerous times that his diabolical plan will be to make the seventh and eighth graders as tired as he possibly can by the end of the week. I notice that he leaves family members to deal with their tired, grumpy relatives over Spring Break!!!
Even in spite of this evil plan, it is my opinion that everyone involved with this trip will have lots of fun!! Everyone, including me, is super excited, and we can’t wait for that week to get here!! See you on the plane!!
