I am planning to participate in an amazing educational program to Washington, D.C., with my friends and classmates from BurlingtonSchool District! We’ll spend days together in D.C. learning really cool things about our country. Here are some of the awesome activities that are planned for us on our Discover D.C. program:
· The Capitol: seeing the Rotunda and the Senate and House chambers where Congress meets.
· White House: visiting the most famous house in America - home to our president and the executive branch of our government.
· Lincoln Memorial: paying tribute to our 16th president and reading his famous Gettysburg Address.
· Arlington National Cemetery: seeing the Changing of the Guard ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Eternal Flame at JFK’s gravesite, and the Challenger Memorial.
· Smithsonian Museums: visiting the many Smithsonian museums located on the Mall in D.C., including the Air and Space Museum and Museum of Natural History .
In order to take part in this totally unique adventure, I need to raise $ 2100. Please help me by sponsoring a portion of my trip. Any contribution you could make would bring me that much closer to this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Please email me if you have any questions or want to hear more about this really great learning opportunity. Thank you for your consideration.
