High school students from Mrs. Kelly's business classes and Mr. Nielsen's physics classes recently went on a field trip to Top Golf. On Wednesday April 12th, they boarded buses and headed up to Vineyard to learn about the physics of how golf clubs and balls work together, as well as the importance of learning how to work well with people in business. The workers at Top Golf did an excellent job and made the trip very educational for everyone involved.
