Euclid Middle School Students Travel to Our Nation's Capital
On May 18, 2015, twenty-nine eighth grade students embarked on a journey of a lifetime. The Central Middle School 8th grade class trip took students on a three-day adventure throughout our nation’s capital. Students participated in tours of the Holocaust Museum, National Archives, the Capitol Building, American History Museum, Natural History Museum, and Air and Space Museum. Along with all of the museums, students also visited several monuments and memorials including MLK, FDR, Jefferson, WWII, Vietnam, Lincoln, Korean, and Iwo Jima Memorials.
On the second night, students took a dinner cruise aboard The Odyssey, where they enjoyed a moonlight cruise of dinner and dancing with several other schools from across the United States. The final day of the trip, students toured Arlington Cemetery, viewed the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Changing of the Guard, and the Kennedy gravesites. Over the course of three days, students enjoyed a full itinerary and returned to Central exhausted, with many fond memories.
