Allapattah Flats K-8 middle grades students had the opportunity to visit Washington D.C. over spring break. The students visited numerous national monuments and learned about the nation’s history. Students visited the Capitol, the White House, Arlington Cemetery, and the Washington monument. They enjoyed the Jefferson, Lincoln and Martin Luther King Memorials, as well as the Korean, Marine, Viet Nam Memorials and the tomb of the unknown soldier where they witnessed the changing of the guard. The group wrapped up the trip by visiting some of the capitol’s famous museums and spent the last day at Georgetown University checking out the college.
