8th Grade Students Head to Washington, DC
The Eighth Grade field trip to Washington D.C. was very eventful. On the first day when we arrived in the nation’s Capital, after our nine-hour drive, we hit the ground running. Right off the bat, we were in Arlington National Cemetery, where we witnessed the changing of the guard, saw the Eternal Flame at the Kennedy Gravesite, and witnessed glimpses of a few funerals. The next stop was the Iwo Jima Memorial, which features five men struggling to raise a flag, and the amazing optical illusion that the flag is being raised as you drive around the monumental statue. The World War II Memorial was gigantic, truly a work of art. After a stop for dinner, we went on a ghost tour in historic Alexandria, Virginia. Many ghosts layer the town in rich history; the brick walls hold so many stories.Full Story
