A three day trip to Washington D.C. is scheduled for interested students on Oct. 29-31 of next year. The trip is made possible through an organization called World Strides.

Social studies teacher Abby Maska will be taking the students, and this will be her third time.

“We usually have a very packed itinerary,” Maska said. “We visit the Smithsonian Museum, all the major monuments, the Holocaust Museum, Capitol Hill and other sights as well.”

Students have to be currently a sophomore, junior, or senior, to be able to participate.

“There are certain behavior requirements as well,” Maska said. “That should be expected.”

Early registration will cost approximately $1,500 dollars.

“This includes all meals, airfare, hotel, transportation and tickets,” Maska said.

A perk is that this trip will include tour guides who help explain the sights and wonders of the city.

“It’s unlike anything else they’ll experience,” Maska said. “Having a tour guide helps give student insight and unknown facts that they probably wouldn’t get if they just visited Washington D.C. with family.”

Maska believes visiting Washington D.C. would be a very educational and unforgettable experience to students.

“The students I have taken in the past really enjoyed the trip,” Maska said. “I really do recommend this trip to students who are looking into it right now.”
