Washington DC 8th Grade Trip

PHM students on Spring 2017 DC trip


8th grade Class Trip to Washington, DC & Gettysburg

Each year the 8th grade class travels to Washington, D.C. and Gettysburg, Pennsylvania during the month of May. Our students tour the nation’s capital by foot, bus, and boat, taking in monuments and museums. If that isn’t enough, we charge the battlefields of Gettysburg before we make our way home. This is an incredible opportunity for our students and is a memory-making experience to conclude their study of U.S. history.

This year’s trip is Tuesday, May 26, 2020 through Saturday, May 30, 2020.
