On Wednesday April 7th we went to a Major League Baseball Game! Our local team, the Oakland A’s, beat the Seattle Mariners in an exciting game at the Oakland Coliseum. It is a special Wednesday night game promotion and also the opening of the first series for the season. The promotion was for $2 tickets and $1 hot dogs. It was a great way to start off your SPRING BREAK! The game started at 7 p.m , and featured some real star players such as #51 Ichiro Suzuki on the Mariners.
After spring break we will be spending a weekend in Los Angeles. On April 15-18 we will be in Southern California on our LA TRIP. The Trip costs $255 per person and the deadline is Wednesday, April 7th. We will rent a van to drive down south and there is limited availability of seats in the van which means only 13 students can go.
