8th Graders return from Feb. 27th-March 3rd D.C. trip with Full Hearts
The 8th grade trip to Washington D.C. this year was a journey that provided learning across multiple spectrums. It was an emotional trip that allowed our students to bond, grow, and contemplate their place in our world through numerous experiences together. They have become witnesses to history during this trip: they touched the Berlin Wall, heard testimony about the Holocaust, gave thanks in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, stood in George Washington’s study, and walked the 100-year-old National Cathedral on Ash Wednesday.
Each day started with a prayer asking God to be present as they opened their hearts and minds to the joy, learning, fun, kindness, and love found within the group, as well as the sites and people they would encounter. That feeling permeated throughout the trip as they visited Arlington National Cemetery, War Memorials, Presidential Memorials and Monuments, the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, as well as the Capitol Building and the Supreme Court, and lastly – the White House.
