Carroll Bell Elementary students win field trip to SeaWorld

In partnership with P16 Plus Council of Greater Bexar County, Carroll Bell Elementary announced a free trip to SeaWorld for students with the most improved attendance on May 17.

To celebrate the big news, SeaWorld Director of Education Ann Quinn gave students and teachers a preview of what to expect by bringing an American bald eagle to campus. Students learned fun facts about the national bird and the importance of animal conservation.

“When they come out next week, they’re going to get to go to all of the animal habitats and learn about all kinds of animals,” Quinn said. “We have two educational presentations just for the school kids, and they’ll learn about killer whales, beluga whales, sea lions and much more.”

Carroll Bell Elementary is one of two schools selected as winners for having the most improved attendance rates among students, beating more than 40 area elementary schools from four different school districts.

“Attendance is important because we know that it’s going to impact student performance, how much they learn, and hopefully create that desire to be present,” P16 Plus Council of Greater Bexar County Director of Student Success Abby Nash said. “We can’t thank SeaWorld enough, SeaWorld came on board and wanted to sponsor the field trip, from buses to tickets, and they’ve just been incredible.”

Way to go, Carroll Bell students!
