History Come to Life for
Students during Washington, D.C.
PreEminent Charter School Eighth Graders Visit Historical
RALEIGH, N.C., April 18, 2014—Eighth-grade students at PreEminent
Charter School traveled to Washington, D.C. to learn, explore, and reflect on
some historic moments in time.
At the end of March, students spent
three days touring our nation’s capital keeping a full itinerary to make sure
they took advantage of as many educational opportunities as possible. The
students toured the National Museum of Crime & Punishment, Newseum, and the
Frederick Douglass Historic Site…just to name a few.
“I had a lot of fun at the Museum of Crime and
Punishment,” said student Amira Sander. “It was nice learning new things with
my friends in an interactive environment.”
“We learned about Frederick Douglass
and we saw where President Obama lived in Washington, D.C. before he became
president. If I had the chance to do it again, I would!” said student Christopher
Teacher Iwinosa Idahor said the visit
is a wonderful culminating field trip as the students bring their PreEminent
Charter School years to a close.
“The opportunity to take the students
to Washington D.C. is a truly valuable experience because as a teacher, I want
to feed their desire to learn beyond just my classroom,” said Iwinosa Idahor,
“But the field trip is also an experience that will bond them together as
Panther eighth graders who will move on to high school next year.”
PreEminent Charter Schools is a free
public charter school serving students in kindergarten through eighth grade.
