In June, the National Junior Honor Society from Mt. Vista School in Oracle once again traveled to New York City and Washington DC.  Twenty-one students, ten parents, and three teachers went on the trip.  While in Washington, they visited the Smithsonian Museums, toured the Capitol, visited Mt. Vernon and Arlington Cemetery, and visited many memorials.  They were also treated to a walking “Ghost Tour” of Arlington, VA.

The group traveled by bus from Washington to New York where they were able to visit the 9-11 Memorial, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, and tour the financial district.  They also attended a Broadway Play where they enjoyed seeing Cinderella.  Students and adults had a great time in Times Square where they shopped and spotted several celebrities.  They were also enthralled as they strolled through Central Park and were entertained by the many street musicians.

The trip to Washington DC is a bi-annual event for the NJHS students at Mt. Vista.  Students fund raise throughout the year in order to finance their trips.  The district also assists by making tax credit money available to students.
