Wellington Elementary School Safety Patrols Visit Washington, D.C.

Wellington Elementary School’s fifth-grade safety patrol group had the time of their lives traveling to Washington, D.C., from May 8 to 10.

The itinerary was filled every minute of the day, visiting historical sites that they have learned about in the classroom. The safety patrols enjoyed visiting the FDR, MLK and Jefferson memorials, the White House, the Holocaust Museum, the Natural History and American History museums, while also taking a night tour of the Lincoln, Vietnam War, World War II and Korean War memorials, as well as eating lunch at the U.S. Capitol.

Wellington Elementary School thanks teacher Jessica Myerscough, Palm Beach County’s Social Studies Teacher of the Year, for organizing this amazing trip that the fifth graders will always remember.
