The junior class visited Washington D.C. recently touring various monuments, commemorative sites, and museums set in the nation’s capital.
The historical sites provided the students with prodigious unforgettable memories, while impressing upon them the great stories of heroism and justice that built the nation.
While in D.C., students visited the American and Natural History Museums, The Holocaust Museum and stopped at the Iwo Jima Memorial. The students spent some time at Mount Vernon, toured and had lunch at The Capitol, and the Library of Congress, and stopped at the White House. In addition, they visited the Lincoln Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, stopped at the Kennedy Graves and watched the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
Jack Lester, Julieta Pompo, Zack Vossler and Bridget Fallon participated in the wreath laying ceremony. These three students were chosen based on writing a voluntary essay prior to the trip.
The students also spent some time at the Air & Space Museum before heading home.
