Fifth Graders Visit United Nations
What an amazing opportunity it was for the 5th grade students at Charter Oak to visit the United Nations headquarters in New York City last week.

Students got to see that IB philosophies are not just for the classroom but practiced every day in the 'real world'!

**Students observed memorials like the one in the photo above honoring the victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade - a reminder the fight against racism and prejudice goes on. Click on any image to learn more.
