Greetings from Washington, D.C.! Fortunately, the eighth-grade students, teachers, chaperones and I came here to experience so much more than the weather as it seems we left the sunshine in Seattle! We have traveled through some very dramatic thunderstorms!
If you are following us on Facebook, you will know that we toured Mount Vernon, many Smithsonian Museums, Monticello, the University of Virginia and Gettysburg. I am so proud of our students who are so well prepared. Mr. Thomas has informed them well about each historic building. They know what to look out for and they answer questions posed to them by tour guides. We are up early and out sightseeing and learning all day long on a great trip so well organized by Mrs. Halley.
While we are traveling around the nation’s capital, the seventh grade is learning all about our state capital and the geography and history of Washington under sunny skies. You will also find pictures of their trip on Facebook.
You may not find any pictures from Environmental Science Camp yet, as the sixth-grade students only left yesterday. By now they are out in the woods learning about our natural and renewable resources.
Don’t forget to register for the celebration on June 2…the groundbreaking and Capital Cookout! See below for more.
