Purpose: Each year the 8th grade class at Christ the King Catholic School travels to Washington D.C. for an overnight field trip. This trip is an awesome educational opportunity where the students will visit many of D.C.’s finest attractions, including the Grant Memorial, the Library of Congress, the Supreme Court Building, Ford’s Theater, and many of the memorials. Students also visit the Arlington National Cemetery and take a day trip to Gettysburg, PA.
To gain an appreciation of American war heroes and to honor important individuals in U.S. history, students will have a walking tour to visit the Washington Monument, World War II, Vietnam, and Korean War Memorials. Additionally, students will visit memorials dedicated to former President Franklin D. Roosevelt and civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. Special tours of the Holocaust Memorial Museum and the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception will give students a new perspectives on the heritage of their country. We will stay at a local hotel Wednesday and Thursday nights and travel by motor coach during the day to the different destinations. The Tiger Dash will provide opportunities for the students to raise money to go toward reducing the cost of the field trip.
