HERMISTON Most students who see the shiny new bicycle in the window of the Sunset Elementary main office think of the fun they could have riding it with their friends or trying out new tricks.
However, fifth grade students at the school think of something a little different when they pass the bicycle in the window. They think of the fun they could have exploring the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) in Portland.
Student from the three fifth-grade classes and their teachers are raffling off the bicycle to help raise funds for a class trip to OMSI sometime in the end of May. The group needs to raise about $1,800 for the trip.
The trip would tie in with the fifth-grade science curriculum. Ann Stanley pointed out that the trip would also allow students to see areas outside of Hermiston.
