The water water fall in Starved Rock

Starting next year, seniors will be going to Starved Rock instead Six Flags

For about a decade Morton East has been taking their senior students to Six Flag as part of their senior activities, but for next year they’ve decided to change it up. Starved Rock is a state park in the wilderness area of Oglebay Illinois. It’s about an hour away and has been voted has Illinois #1 attraction. It’s mainly known for its waterfalls and canyon as well as spotting’s of wildlife like white tailed deer, migratory birds, and bald eagles.

“I’m really excited for this brand-new activity for next year, thank god they brought up something more excited and something that everyone might want to join and go to this”, junior Leslie Lopez said.

The juniors are most excited about this change since they would be the first class attending there. But although they’re excited the seniors don’t seem to feel the same way.

“I don’t like the fact that we don’t get to choose if we want to go to six flags or starved rock because half of us students don’t like hiking and won’t enjoy it as much as six flags,” senior Jennifer Soto said.

Most seniors see this change as unfair since it could’ve been ready for them year since there were already multiple changes this year and it’s something more exciting that would be a perfect way to end the senior’s year.

“I still can’t believe they’re really going to do that, it’s so good because now we get to do something different and not like the other years before us when they would just go to six flags but I guess I’m excited for the seniors next year, they’ll be ending the year with a banger,“ senior Jaquelin Leon said.

    I found believable that Morton changed up the senior activities after years of having the graduating seniors do the same thing every year 12th grade graduated. I found questionable the articles authenticity because of the many grammatical errors the article had like if it was written by a couple group of kids who just wanted to start commotion. No I wouldn’t have believed it because of how “unprofessional” the article was wrote in; the grammatical errors, sentences not making sense etc.

    I found believable that ,”The juniors are most excited about this change since they would be the first class attending there. But although they’re excited the seniors don’t seem to feel the same way.” because juniors always have this happy mindset and seniors just want to graduate.
    I found,” Most seniors see this change as unfair since it could’ve been ready for them year since there were already multiple changes this year and it’s something more exciting that would be a perfect way to end the senior’s year.” because seniors wouldn’t like it, its adding too much time off them being busy students. It would be hard to believe because the school wouldn’t add no extra boring days off.

    One thing that I found believable is about Morton East changing the Senior Activity because not only would Starved Rock be fun and enjoyable, but it would also be educational. I don’f find anything questionable. I would actually believe this if I didn’t knew it was fake because it would make sense for Morton East to want to change things up.

    I would have found it believable because it talked about how the school has been making changes all around. One questionable thing would be that why wouldnt the school let everyone know beforehand. I would have believed this article because the school can have decisions and change them up.

    I found this believable because it is good to change things up and go different places with students so they can have their opinions for the next year. What is questionable to me is why have the same senior activity each year? i wouldn’t have believed this article if it were to be posted because if the school goes to the same place each year for a while already then why change it now?
