2012 Senior Trip: Washington D.C.


The 9th grade trip to Washington D.C. is rapidly approaching. Mr. Brooks, Mr. Sedney and I are looking forward to exploring our nation’s capital with Hillside’s senior class. We will be visiting a number of famed attractions while there, including Arlington National Cemetery, the Holocaust Memorial Museum and the various memorials gracing the Mall. Sightseeing will be coupled with a variety of learning opportunities during our four-day adventure.

Upon our arrival in Washington, we will blog and keep you up to date on our various trips and experiences! We can’t wait to hit the road on Monday morning!
