British American Students Head Home Today from Washington, D.C.

Sixteen fifth and sixth graders returned today after a week-long residential visit studying the Nation’s Capitol. The grade level makes the annual residential trip to see the highlights of Washington, D.C., and further their government studies about the United States. The students, along with Head Teacher Adam Stevens and teacher Andrea Kelly, visited The Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam War Wall, the Holocaust Museum as well as the Crime and Punishment Museum. A trip to learn about spying and detective work, NCIS-style was also included in the trip—and proved to be a favorite visit.
