Everybody knows the basic classes such as math and English, but there are a few classes that most people do not know a lot about. One of these classes is bowling. Bowling is a zero-period class that takes place at the Harley Simi bowling alley on East Los Angeles Avenue. The people in the class meet at the bowling alley Wednesday and Thursday mornings from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. One of the biggest reasons that people join the class is because you get Physical Education credits, and possibly a free period. There is no transportation to and from the bowling alley, so you are going to have to find a ride.

The way the class works is you get in groups of four and you stay with them for the rest of the year. Luckily, you get to choose who you are in a group with. Throughout the year you compete against the other teams to see which team is the best. Sophomore Austin Sandifer is enrolled in the class and said, “I really like the class, I get a free period and I am bowling a lot better than I did before I started the class.” The teacher grades you based on attendance, this means that you are graded on whether you are there, and on time. It is a fun and easy class, and I am going to take it again next year with my friends. Junior Travis Voorhees said, “I wish I would have signed up but I waited too long. I have friends in the class and it looks like fun.”
