Today we welcomed our sixth graders back to campus after their annual adventure in Washington D.C. last week. This marks the 32nd year Middle School students have taken a trip to our nation's capital to enhance their American history curriculum.
While in D.C., students had the opportunity to see many of this country's greatest monuments and museums. They visited the Washington Monument, the Vietnam memorial, Mount Vernon, the Library of Congress, and more.
"It definitely made learning fun!" said Daly, a sixth-grade student. "My favorite part was the Library of Congress because of all the knowledge in there. And since the trip was early in the year, all of my classmates didn't know each other well before the trip. But now we know each other really well and I feel like we are better friends!"
This educational experience is a special tradition for ESD students. Since their return, students have been working on a scrapbook project reflecting on their trip to Washington D.C., what they learned, and how it ties into their studies.
