FSAPS students attended Washington, D.C. between May 1st and May 6th. It was an action packed trip with so much to do and see! A great time was had by all! We had perfect weather, which was wonderful considering all the walking we had to do!
We visited several museums including; The Natural History Museum, The American History Museum, 2 Air and Space museums,The National Geographic Explorer's Hall, and The Newseum.
We tried to catch a glimpse of The President at The White House and viewed The National Archives.
We were able to see the breathtaking memorials of Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and the WWII Memorial.
We also toured Mt. Vernon, the beautiful home of George Washington. One of the highlights of the trip was that some of our students were chosen to participate in a wreath laying ceremony on his tomb... a very special honor indeed.
We witnessed the Changing of the Guards at Arlington National Cemetery and saw JFK's eternal flame.
We visited the National Zoo and the adorable pandas, and had a special tour of the U.S. Capitol.
A BIG thank you to our organizers! Go Educational Tours was a wonderful company to work with as well!
