In advance of the annual Washington D.C. class trip for Wyalusing Valley Elementary School sixth-graders, students are encouraged to construct a model of the building or monument that most inspired them.
In her report to the Wyalusing Area School Board on Nov. 11, elementary school representative Camryn McMicken (above) said that she and her fellow sixth graders are getting excited about their Nov. 20 class trip to Washington, D.C. The annual adventure for Wyalusing students is preceded by months of learning about the nation’s capitol, its history and its many monuments.
Camryn encouraged board and audience members to look at the many renderings of monuments and iconic capitol buildings constructed by sixth graders that are currently on display in the elementary school lobby, which many people were observed to do after the meeting ended.
