Hammond Westside Montessori took its' first inaugural trip to Washington, D.C., March 7-9. The students spent three jam packed days visiting and seeing all the sights that our Nation's Capital has to offer. Some of the highlights included visiting all the monuments and memorials on the National Mall like the Washington Monument, the Jefferson Memorial, the Martin Luther King Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial. The students toured the White House, visited Representative Steve Scalise's office where they were treated to a tour of the Capitol, visited the Holocaust Museum, and toured Arlington Cemetery where they witnessed the changing of the guards. The students and chaperones all had a wonderful time, and we are looking forward to offering this experience to all our future 8th grade classes! Those students and chaperones attending this year included: Mr. Oller, Mrs. Blades, Mrs. Colona, Samuel Bell, Piper Bentivegnia, Lamaurion Cook, Carter Copsey, Caniya Cyprian, Adam DeArmond, Tristan Howard, Alayna Huggins, YaKennya Jones, Ger'Lacia Toney, Quan'A'Nira Turner, Baily Vasquez, and Aaron Ward.
