Wellington Elementary Safety Patrols Visit D.C.

Wellington Elementary School’s fifth grade safety patrol members had the time of their lives traveling to Washington, D.C., May 13-15. The itinerary was filled every minute of the day, visiting historic sites that the students learned about in school. The safety patrol enjoyed visiting the FDR, MLK and Jefferson memorials, the White House, the Holocaust Museum, the Natural History Museum and the American History Museum, taking a night tour of the Lincoln, Vietnam War, World War II and Korean War Memorials, eating lunch at the U.S. Capitol. Principal Dr. Maria Vaughan accompanied them on their trip. The school thanks teachers Jessica Myerscough and Melissa Perry for organizing the trip, as well as chaperones Kristine Frey, Karlie Smith and LuiEcherri, who made the trip possible. Shown above are safety patrol students and their chaperones in front of the White House.
