Bringing Their Research to Washington

The 8th grade had a terrific trip to Washington Thursday! The weather was spectacular and showed Washington off to advantage. At the Newseum, students visited a three major exhibits focused on the Berlin Wall, 9/11, and the changing work of the FBI.  We visited Pennsylvania Senator Robert Casey’s office and spoke to staffers who work on both domestic and foreign policy teams. Our final stop was the White House Conference Center to meet with White House and other administration staffers to learn about their work and their stories. What an impressive group of young, smart, engaged people! Michael Block '94, who organized this gathering for us, was certainly a powerful example of all we hope for in a TPS graduate! Students shared their Bill of Rights research and recommendations for next steps.
