Attention 7th Graders:
2023 Washington DC Trip
FJH 8th graders recently returned from the annual class trip to Washington D.C. and had an incredible experience. Mr. Heiniger (8th grade social studies teacher) will again be sponsoring the trip through Worldstrides next year over President’s Day weekend. Students will fly out to our nation’s capital Saturday-Monday and visit many of the Smithsonian Museums such as the Natural and American History Museums, the Air and Space Museum, as well as the Holocaust Museum. They will also be visiting Ford’s Theatre, Mount Vernon, Arlington National Cemetery, the Capitol, Supreme Court, National Cathedral, and many other monuments and memorials. Students received detailed information packets from their social studies teacher that contain early sign-up discounts and an opportunity to lock in a $100 discount off next year’s price if they register by May 18th. Here is a link to a website with registration information as well: https://worldstrides.com/custom/fishers-jrhs-dc-202092/. There will also be an optional parent meeting on April 27th at 7:00pm in the FJH Media Center for additional information. Don’t let your son or daughter miss this once in a lifetime opportunity!
