Last week, 50 of our 8th graders travelled to Washington DC to learn, collaborate, and have fun. They spent five days touring the capital of the United States by visiting monuments, museums, memorials, and the Capitol Building. The eight graders were also able to travel to Colonial Williamsburg to learn about colonial life when our country was just getting started.

On Sunday, the 8th graders went to Capitol Hill, the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian,  the Washington Monument, and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Our school tours DC with a program called Closeup. One of the most engaging aspects of the trip was when students are able to discuss what they learned and their thoughts on the day. The entire trip was filled with learning, fun, and teamwork!
