Eleven Phoenix Middle School seventh and eighth graders, along with teachers Jess Rima and Shaina Sepulveda, took headed to Washington D.C. recently to learn about our nation’s history.
The students and teachers also had the opportunity to visit Williamsburg and Jamestown to see where British colonization began in the Americas.
The group visited the U.S. Capitol, the White House, Ford’s Theatre, Arlington Cemetery, as well as several memorials, monuments, and museums, including the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum where they met a survivor of the Holocaust.
Students held a variety of fundraisers prior to the trip east to help pay for it.
What a great learning adventure for all who went!
