Students travel to DC
This year, 90 eighth graders from JFS braved the hot and humid weather in Washington, DC, May 18-20. This trip was an opportunity for students to explore the nation’s capital and learn about history from hands-on experiences.
Students committed to attend this trip in October and spent the school year raising necessary funds. While on the trip, students visited The National Zoo, Arlington National Cemetery, Mt. Vernon, The Holocaust Museum, The Museum of American History, The Air and Space Museum, and toured the Capitol Building. The group also stopped outside the White House for a photo op outside of the White House.
A generous grant through Donor’s Choose made it possible for our students to receive snacks, water, and an orange cinch pack for the trip.
Families of current seventh graders, please stay tuned…a trip for next year’s eighth graders is already in the planning stages.
