FJH Students go to Washington D.C.

Mr. Hill lead a trip to D.C with Frontenac Junior High Students.

 

Twenty-eight seventh and eighth grade students from Frontenac Junior High had the opportunity to tour the nation’s capital over Spring Break. While in Washington, D.C., they were able to see where the nation’s laws and policies are put into action by touring the White House and the U.S. Capitol.  They were also able to see the United States Supreme Court.  The students saw where our nation’s history is preserved while visiting the National Archives, the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian Museums, and the Holocaust Museum.  They also visited several of the most well-known historic sites in the United States including Mount Vernon, Ford’s Theatre, and the National Mall.  Finally, students were able to honor those that have shaped our nation as they visited Arlington National Cemetery, the Iwo Jima/Marine War Memorial, Air Force Memorial, and the Pentagon Memorial.  These sites provided students with a new perspective on the United States and will forever live in their memories!
