PLEASANT HILL — A group of 54 excited students, teachers, and chaperones left Pleasant Hill Elementary School Tuesday, March 11, at 3:00 p.m. in a chartered bus headed for Orlando, Florida.  They arrived around midnight Tuesday night. 

After a few hours of rest, they enjoyed a buffet breakfast at Shoney’s Wednesday morning.  Then they visited Epcot and Hollywood Studios (formerly MGM) where they enjoyed shows and rides until closing.  The nighttime entertainment at Hollywood Studios included “Fantasmic!”, an awe-inspiring spectacle of fire, water, music, and lights show featuring Mickey Mouse. 

Thursday encompassed a Shoney’s buffet breakfast and all day at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.  The highlight of the evening was the “Disney Dreams Come True Parade” at 9:00 p.m. on Main Street, U.S.A. and the fireworks show at Cinderella’s Castle at 10:00 p.m. 

The trip wasn’t all play for students and teachers.  On Friday morning, the 34 students and 5 teachers from PHES participated in the Y.E.S. Program (Youth Educational Program) at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  It was there that they took a “tour” of Africa and Asia.  The trip through the Kilimanjaro Safari on a safari bus was amazing with its 110 acres of rolling savannas filled with freely roaming animals. 

The trip was coordinated by Mrs. Rebecca McLean and Mrs. Candice Gaster, fifth grade teachers.  Other parent chaperones who are also teachers at PHES were Mrs. Renee Moore, Mrs. Gerhonda Miller, and Mrs. Shanda Stone.  The group would like to thank Principal Teddy Graham for permitting such an awesome trip.  The teachers plan to make this trip a yearly adventure for fifth graders at Pleasant Hill Elementary School.
