Every year around the end of the school year, many districts in the state go to Lagoon as an enrichment for the Junior High and High School students. For those of you who don’t know what that is, Lagoon is an amusement park in Farmington Utah. Many people visit Lagoon every year, including our school, Salem Jr. High.

Although we know that Lagoon Day is during the end of May, there is not a specific date quite yet that we know of. This information will be given a few weeks in advance of Lagoon Day.

Some people may have the question of how you might be able to go. Unfortunately, you can’t just go. There are certain things you need to have to go. First of all, you can’t have any tardies or missing assignments. You also have to have all lunch money or other fees paid off. Fortunately, grades don’t matter. So technically you could have D’s and F’s and still go. If you go to Lagoon you also have to pay the school 45 dollars for the ticket. The school will take care of everything else for you.

On September 22nd we had an interview with Mr. Dayton to see what he thinks about Lagoon Day. He Said his favorite ride will be the new ride Cannibal even though he hasn’t been on it yet. Besides that ride, his other favorite is Wicked. He also said Lagoon Day is a good way to bond with your fellow students and a good way for 9th graders say goodbye to Jr.High.

We also did an interview with an 8th grader and this is what he said about the following questions:

  • What is your favorite ride in Lagoon? “Probably the Colossul.. Colossus.

  • Why do you like Lagoon? “It’s just fun. Especially..it’s the only theme park in Utah.”

  • What would you want to change about Lagoon day if you could?  “The busses.”

Lagoon is going to be great this year! We hope you all get to Lagoon this year and share a fun experience with your friends! Thanks!
