St. Cecilia sails to Seattle Aquarium field trip

Saint Cecilia Catholic School students in kindergarten through eighth grade, as well as their teachers and many parents, took the ferry to Seattle Wednesday, June 5 for a field trip to the aquarium.

“We had a wonderful time,” said Principal Susan Kilbane. “When looking at the huge tank in the photo, second-grader Annie Dunn was amazed and said, ‘It feels like we are in it!’”

Kilbane said the school’s student council raised money — via a Casa Rojas Express takeover in October, a McDonald’s “McTakeover” in May, and monthly ice cream sandwich sales — to pay for tickets for the students, seven teachers and 13 parents.

It was, she added, the first such all-ages trip for the school.

“A good time was had by all,” she said.
