Washington D.C. Field Trip for Middle School Students

 Washington D.C. Field Trip for Middle School Students

Some of our middle school students had the opportunity to travel to Washington D.C., this year for their annual field trip. The trip provided students with a firsthand look at the workings of the federal government and an appreciation for the arts. It was an unforgettable educational experience that enriched their understanding of American civics and culture.

On the first day, they visited the FDR, Jefferson, and MLK Jr. Memorials. The second day was packed with activities, including witnessing the changing of the guard at Arlington National Cemetery, exploring the National Museum of African American History and Culture, the National Air & Space Museum, and the International Spy Museum. They enjoyed dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe before touring the Vietnam War, Korean War, and Lincoln Memorial. The final day included taking pictures in front of the White House, a tour of the Capitol Building, and visits to the Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Museum of Natural History, and the Museum of American History. The trip concluded with an Alexandria Colonial ghost tour. Though it was a busy few days, it was an amazing and enriching experience.
