Pleasant Lea Middle School students, accompanied by three social studies teachers, visited Washington, D.C., June 5-8. The bi-annual trip is funded by the students’ families and organized by the Social Studies Department.
The group, including 21 students, walked throughout the Washington area, visiting historic sites, memorials and museums. For the first time, the Washington group visited Monticello, the home and farmstead of President Thomas Jefferson.
In addition four students from PLMS — Elaina Twenter, Josh Evans, Christian Hess, and Riley Neff — presented a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery.
