8th Grade thoughts on Washington D.C


If you didn’t know already St. Philip has created an annual trip that 8th graders can participate in if they want to every year which is the trip with your class to Washington D.C. As an 8th grader I know that I am definitely looking forward to going with my class to Washington D.C. I can probably say this for all the students going but I am pretty sure everyone is really excited about this. This is definitely a big step for eighth graders and will for sure give us an experience that most middle schools do not offer. I decided to ask some of the students questions about washington D.C and how they are feeling about it to see their point of views.

These were the questions I asked each of them:

  1. What are you most excited about for our trip to Washington D.C?
  2. What monument do you want to see the most?
  3. Are more excited or nervous? Why?

  3. I’m Excited because there’s nothing to be nervous about ¬†and because I can see things I’ve never seen before and bond with my classmates

  2. The Washington Monument
  3. I’m excited because I get to have a week of spending quality time with friends

  1. Being with my friends and looking forward to exploring a new city
  2. The White House
  3. I’m Excited because I get to hang out with friends and not worry about my life in Pasadena

  2. The White House

As you can tell everyone seems pretty excited about the trip and can’t wait. I think everyone is mainly excited to be able to go and experience something new with all of their classmates.
