One month after the E.B. Frink Middle School's eighth graders traveled to New York City, the seventh-grade students had their turn in the nation's capital.
In late April more than 20 students, parents, and chaperons led by Zach Groves and Lauran Smith spent their weekend in Washington, D.C., touring the city's many monuments. In addition, they spent an afternoon between the Smithsonian's Air and Space Museum, American History Museum and Natural History Museum.
Also, for the first time ever the students walked around the 9/11 Memorial at the Pentagon and took in the Air Force Memorial. The next day, the students wrapped up the trip with a tour of Arlington National Cemetery where they watched the Changing of the Guard and encountered multiple World War II veterans who also happened to be in town.
On their way out of the city they spent some time at George Washington's home in Mt. Vernon along with dozens of American Revolution re-enactors.
