Ms. Smith’s A.P. Government class visited Washington D.C. over spring break. The purpose of the trip was to give the students the opportunity to see the foundation of their country. Some of the highlights of their trip was meeting our District Representative, Mark Meadows. Students got to see the famous Washington Monument and were allowed to go up top to see the gorgeous view. Students witnessed a protest in front of the White House as well. They visited some of the Smithsonian Museums including the Air and Space Museum and the Natural History Museum. Students also visited Mount Vernon, Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown.  “The students were mesmerized by the city”, said Ms. Smith. All in all, the trip was very successful.  by Makhaila Anderson and  Zoia Torres
