School board OKs trips


The Grand Coulee Dam School District board approved two student trips at its meeting April 25, and put a hold on another.

The board approved a trip by three students and advisors to “Imagine Tomorrow,” a science event at Washington State University at Pullman. The students will present a biofuel education project. The event is scheduled for May 20-22.

Eleven students and two advisors were approved to take part in a project at Silverwood Theme Park, in Athol, Idaho. The project challenges students to apply physics principles to park rides. That trip is scheduled for May 18.

This year’s senior trip was held up by the board for lack of finished paperwork.

The board had approved the trip back in January, subject to the board getting the finished paperwork. The trip was on the agenda but held up because of the paperwork not being completed.

The senior trip this year is scheduled for May 29-31, to California. The seniors plan to take a bus to Spokane where they will catch a flight to San Jose. They will spend part of a day at a theme park there and then go by bus to San Francisco for a variety of experiences, including a stop at Alcatraz Island.

The board will still have to approve the finished paperwork.
