History Come to Life for Students during Washington, D.C. Field Trip
PreEminent Charter School Eighth Graders Visit Historical Sites
 
RALEIGH, N.C., April 18, 2014Eighth-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 Elliott. 
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.
