Students must bring a calculator, a water bottle, and an admissions slip. Joel will provide admission slips to students who have registered closer to the date.

Washington D.C. Field Expedition

To Do: If you have not completed a Washington DC Trip Form for your child please do so today.

What To Expect: African American History is integrated through the US History curriculum this year, and the National Museum of African American History & Culture has so much that meshes with the events, documents, and people we have studied. In DC, we will also see the US Capitol, the White House, the Supreme Court, the Smithsonian, the Lincoln Memorial, the MLK Memorial, and more.

Our ninth graders visited the Race Street Quaker Meeting House this week to and learn about Quakerism which is connected to My Broken Language which students are reading in Literature class. Michale Taye says: “The Quaker’s seem to be all about freedom and simplicity. There’s no one set thing Quakers have to believe.”

Students working on “Chemistry in Action” projects.

Alex Brunson and Joanna Lack led a discussion with students about what banks do, how to decide what bank to use, and what bank to avoid. #lifeskills!

At last week’s REVternship Expo, students did tours, met partners, and asked questions. SO many partners were deeply impressed at how “prepared” Revolution students were. They were proud of, and thrilled for, the students and the learning that’s about to happen. Ask your students what they learned, who they met, and for 11th and 12th graders, did their minds change about what the experience they may choose this summer?
