Jefferson City Day Trip
Did you know that Missouri’s capitol is officially named The City of Jefferson? There are so many things to learn and see during this day trip! Mrs. Conklin and Mrs. Stanley will be hosting a full day of activities including a guided tour of the Capitol, meeting state representatives, touring the Supreme Court, walking to the Governor’s Gardens to enjoy a picnic lunch, seeing the Governor’s Mansion, and more! We will also visit another Jefferson City landmark, Central Dairy, for a delicious scoop of ice cream before heading back to Joplin. Tuition for the day is $125 and includes bus and travel expenses, snacks on the bus, and lunch, ice cream, and dinner. This trip is open to any Joplin area incoming 4th – 6th grader and is limited to 20 students. More information can be found in the St .Mary's Summer School 2022 booklet. It’s going to be a fun day that your child won’t want to miss!
