Washington D.C. Class Trip

Our 6th grade students have had a wonderful week in Washington D.C.! They have explored the District fully and are completing their amazing week at the National Zoo today! They have visited several of the Smithsonian Museums, seen all of the monuments, toured the FBI, Ford's Theater, the Capitol (and able to see both Senate and House in session), Library of Congress, Supreme Court, White House, and now at the zoo! They have had a busy week full of wonderful experiences, learning, and great memories! Thank you for supporting their ice cream fundraiser to support their wonderful culminating trip!
