This is from Pembroke School:
Eighth-graders from Pembroke School hit a milestone as they stomped around in D.C. this year; This is the 40th year for the school trip.
With their fearless leader Mr. Kinal leading the way, students departed to Maryland Sunday morning and arrived back home last Tuesday (April 5) evening.
The trip included a stop at Gettysburg on the way down. Mr. Kinal and an entourage of teachers, staff and friends worked very hard to make it yet another successful trip.
It was a very exciting and memorable experience for all. Students explored the various monuments and memorials within Washington, D.C., with their own personal tour guide, Mr. Kinal.
A warm welcome by parents, teachers and staff stood waiting as firetrucks escorted the buses to the school from Darien. The song "Proud To Be An American" played on the bus and all the passengers sang as they returned home to the high school.
It was an amazing end to an amazing trip!!! Thank you to everyone who made it happen!!!
