Gray Stone Juniors in Washington, DC
The junior class of Gray Stone Day School recently returned from a 3-day field trip to Washington, DC.
Organized and led by social studies teacher, Mr. Clay Honeycutt, 56 students and 5 chaperones boarded charter buses on the early morning hours of March 1 to embark on some the nation’s most treasured landmarks.
The field trip included tours to the U.S. Capitol, Mt. Vernon, U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, The Smithsonian Institution, Arlington National Cemetery and the Library of Congress.
“My favorite part of the class trip was being able to go into all the museums, especially the Smithsonian American Art Museum that had a large variety of different flowers and famous paintings.
The Capitol Building and Arlington National Cemetery were fascinating.
As a whole, I think the entire class enjoyed such a fun and educational trip”, said Anaston Trexler.
Other Gray Stone faculty accompanying Mr. Honeycutt included Emery Cagle, Mary Civitarese, Lori Evans and Caroline Turner.
Gray Stone Day School offers students in grades 6-12 a rigorous college preparatory curriculum in an environment that fosters the development of strong character.
Gray Stone Day is a public charter school and free to attend.
