From April 8-11, seventh and eighth grade students from St. Charles School took an educational trip to Washington, D.C. This four day tour of our nation’s capital gave the students the chance to visit some of the most important landmarks, monuments, and buildings in the United States.They visited several museums such as the National Gallery of Art and the Museum of American History. The group spent time at many memorials, including the Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Memorial and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. Students were photographed in front of iconic buildings in D.C. such as the White House and Pentagon. On the final evening of the tour the classes were treated to a moonlight dance cruise on the Potomac River. The trip ended with a very special tour of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, often referred to as “America’s Catholic Church”. Students had the trip of a lifetime and were thrilled to see their social studies curriculum come to life.
