After an unforgettable final year at LBA in Ms. Liliana’s Redondo Beach classroom, the kindergarten students were fully prepared to begin their next chapter in elementary school. But before saying goodbye to Leap & Bound for the last time, Ms. Liliana’s class of 2017 dressed in their bright green T-shirts once more for one of their favorite parts of school: field trips! Wednesday, June 28th would be a day to remember for Ms. Liliana and her students as they embarked together on one last adventure… this time to the happiest place on Earth! A day trip with their classmates and parents to Disneyland on the last day of kindergarten would leave a lasting memory on the students before venturing to new schools for first grade.
Many parents and family members of the kindergarteners attended the field trip to help commemorate the students’ graduation from LBA at everyone’s favorite amusement park. Ms. Liliana and Ms. Tiffany planned an itinerary for the day, beginning at Splash Mountain in Frontierland. The kindergarten students eagerly boarded the log ride and were whisked away past singing animals and down the famous plunging waterfall drop. The final water splash was a thrilling conclusion after a long wait in line for the popular ride. Then it was on to the next adventure!
After a quick lunch, everyone gathered on It’s A Small World for a relaxing break from the hot sun. The kindergarteners swiveled their heads through the ride, looking in wonder at all of the singing animatronic people from cultures around the world. There was so much to soak in and enjoy you almost couldn’t notice the familiar “It’s A Small World” tune playing throughout the ride.
Since the Disneyland passes lasted a full day, most of the kindergarten parents turned the field trip into a family event by staying at the park after the field trip concluded. Why not take advantage of the day to ride some more attractions and watch the fireworks show? Enjoying this special last day of school with family and friends had our Leap & Bound Academy kindergarteners jumping for joy… literally! It was one last field trip after a year of hard work and preparation that our LBA students will never forget.
