Educational opportunities present themselves in many forms. They can come as a teachable moment in the middle of class, or as opportunities to see and do things in a new way. Our 7th grade students had a fantastic educational opportunity this year, traveling and studying in Washington DC from Monday April 24th- Saturday, April 29th, 2017.

The ties to our 7th grade curriculum are amazing. Students experienced Native American culture and history as they explored the American Indian Museum. They watched as our nation’s government came to life in the White House, Library of Congress, Supreme Court and on our tour of the Capitol. Our study of economics jumped off of the pages in the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Civil Rights became more than just a story in the African American History Museum. The true horrors and heroes of World War I and World War II were honored at the multitude of memorials and museums. The pain of the Holocaust victims were felt as we travelled back in time in the Holocaust Museum.

Hopefully this was an experience our students will never forget. Please contact Mr. Stutzman or Mrs. Weigel if you have any questions.
