CUYAHOGA FALLS — Talks have begun to reinstate the city school district’s eighth-grade trip to Washington D.C.
Up until a few years ago the eighth-grade field trip to Washington D.C. was a tradition at Cuyahoga Falls. The district, according to its assistant superintendent, Melvin Brown, is interested in letting eighth-graders have that opportunity again.
“Our staffs at Bolich and Roberts [middle schools] have been collaborating and working with ideas so we can try to resurrect this program and get a trip back on the calendar for the end of the next school year, 2017-18,” said Brown.
Bolich Middle School teacher Dani McIntyre said going to Washington as a student and seeing it for the first time, and then as a student teacher seeing her students experience it “meant the world to me.” The D.C. trip is educational on so many levels, she said, and it helps students develop a greater sense of community.
