The waiting is finally over! The 2017 Washington DC Trip is here!! 51 students are traveling to our nation's capital this and they are excited! Follow our adventures on the trip blog at: http://wmsindc2017.blogspot.com/ ;

Educational opportunities present themselves in many forms. They can come as a teachable moment in the middle of class, or as opportunities to see and do things in a new way. Our 7th grade students have a fantastic educational opportunity this year! We will be traveling and studying in Washington DC from Monday April 24th- Saturday, April 29th, 2017.

The ties to our 7th grade curriculum are amazing. Students will experience Native American culture and history as they explore the American Indian Museum. They will watch as our nation’s government comes to life in the White House, Library of Congress, Supreme Court and on our tour of the Capitol. Our study of economics will jump off of the pages in the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Civil Rights will become more than just a story in the African American History Museum. The true horrors and heroes of World War I and World War II can be honored at the multitude of memorials and museums. The pain of the Holocaust victims will be felt as we travel back in time in the Holocaust Museum.

Hopefully this will be an experience our students will never forget. Please contact Mr. Stutzman or Mrs. Weigel if you have any questions.
