The week of May 10th our 8th-grade students traveled to the east coast to begin a four-day historical adventure. Our students landed in Richmond, Virginia where they spent two days exploring the colonies of Jamestown and Williamsburg. The next day they journeyed to Charlottesville where they "met" Thomas Jefferson, toured the University of Virginia, and visited Monticello. Our final day was spent in our nation's capital. In DC, our students walked the Vietnam War Memorial, saw the White House, took a moonlit dinner cruise on the Potomac, and explored the WWII, Lincoln, Jefferson, and Washington Monuments, as well as the grounds of the Capitol building. In addition, they had the opportunity to see the newly opened Eisenhower memorial. It was a busy 4 days and we are so thankful for our teacher and parent chaperones that made it such a special trip.
