Since the sixth grade Social Studies curriculum is based on learning about ancient history, what better way to culminate the year than by going on a field trip to a place that will take you back in time? The sixth graders were fortunate to have the opportunity to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on June 5 and 6 led by teachers Mr. Herwick and Ms. Bradt. It was a day that will be remembered for a long time and some students are even looking forward to going back soon with their families.

On Wednesday, May 24 the Drama Club sponsored a field trip to NYC to see a new Broadway show entitled BANDSTAND. Students in band, chorus and the High School Drama Club enjoyed this amazing musical which tells the story of a group of veterans returning home to the United States after World War II. Struggling to fit into their old lives while dealing with the lingering effects of the war -- including post-traumatic stress and survivor's guilt for friends who did not survive -- they form a band composed solely of veterans to compete in a national radio contest in New York City. The Drama Club traditionally takes two field trips a year to Broadway to give the opportunity for our students to enjoy and experience professional theater on the “Great White Way”.
