Robert Toombs Christian Academy's Middle School students traveled to Washington, D.C., on a five-day trip beginning Friday, March 10.
The first day was full of traveling on a charter bus bright and early and six in the morning and not arriving until late that night.
The next day, students toured the many different Smithsonian Museums and took an “Illumination tour” to different monuments at night.
The students then traveled to Virginia to see the National Air and Space Museum. Later that day, they visited the Arlington National Cemetery, where four students were chosen to participate in the laying of a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The four students chosen were 6th grader Braylin Pittman, 7th grader Seth Holton, 8th grader Amelia Moore, 9th grader Grayson Semesny.
On the third day, the students traveled to George Washington's Mount Vernon and toured Ford's Theatre. That night students continued the illumination tour seeing several different monuments. Before leaving to head back home to Georgia, the students stopped at Thomas Jefferson's Monticello home to tour. Once the tour was over, students loaded the bus for the long journey home.
