Gray Stone Day School
Class of 2023 at Patriot’s Point Naval Museum
As the COVID-19 pandemic forced students and schools to change their daily routines, restrictions for some traditions such as overnight field trips, have lifted.
The Gray Stone Day School graduating class of 2023 were finally given the opportunity to travel to the Charleston SC area to enjoy some quality time as a class before graduation.
70 seniors along with several school chaperones boarded charter buses the early morning hours of March 22 to visit and learn more about popular attractions such as the Charleston Harbor, Patriot’s Point Naval Museum, and the Charleston Museum. One of the most anticipated activities was the Barrier Island Eco-Tour where students took part in a boat excursion learning about marine life and the pristine barrier islands.
“The best part about the trip was being together.
Most of us are stressing out about college and getting to spend quality time with friends and peers in the beautiful town of Charleston was amazing.
Having this memory to look back on is something we will all cherish.” Abigayle Jordan said.
Other activities included carriage rides through downtown Charleston and a dinner cruise.
“We are excited to be able to offer our students these educational opportunities again.
These field trips provide engaging, hands-on learning experiences that are not necessarily available in the classroom.
I am proud of our seniors and how they represented Gray Stone while traveling.” Added Helen Nance, Chief Administrative Officer.
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.
