Sixty-five Circleville Middle School students spent the last three days of their 8th grade year exploring Washington, DC. They visited a multitude of memorials, including those of Martin Luther King, The Vietnam War, and Lincoln, in addition to shaking hands with veterans at the World War II Memorial. Students also visited the National Cathedral, the Holocaust Museum, their choice of Smithsonian Museums, and Mount Vernon. Travelers also spent time cruising down the Potomac, showing off their dance skills at the Deejayed event or soaking up some sun on the top deck. They also enjoyed ice cream and dipping their tired feet in several fountains outside the Smithsonian Museums.
Students listen to a guide in Statuary Hall in the U. S. Capitol Building.
