The 8th grade at St. Roch traveled to Washington, DC March 9-11. It was the adventure of a lifetime! After all the work the students put into fundraising and making this trip happen they were finally able to enjoy the fruits of their labor.

Twenty students and 5 chaperones took on the sites of DC including (but not limited to) The White House, Arlington National Cemetery, Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, Lincoln Memorial, Pentagon Memorial, National Museum of African American History and Culture, The Capitol Building, WWII Memorial and many other spots. The excursion was a whirlwind enjoyed by all. The 2019 inaugural trip will, hopefully, inspire future St. Roch classes work hard to raise funds in order to explore our nation’s capital and experience the varied lessons in all classes that have been taught over the years.

Senator Roy Blunt joined us for the morning and gave us a history of the US Capitol Building.
