Last week, the fifth grade embarked on the annual Charleston field trip. The class drove down early Tuesday morning last week and arrived back at the school on Wednesday night. Most years, the trip lasts two nights. However, this year, the trip was shortened to one night. The students and chaperones enjoyed touring several historic sites at Charleston. They visited the Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon. The Old Exchange building has served many purposes over the last few hundred years, and was an essential piece of our state’s birth. The class also visited Fort Sumter. My younger sister is in the fifth grade, and she has said only positive things about the trip. Once again, the Charleston trip has been a fun, educational time for all of the students.
