Local students gear up for trip to Washington D.C.

Posted: Updated:

One eighth grade class in KOTA territory gears up for a trip to our nation's capital.

It's not your average vacation but it will be an educational one for a group of students at Bluffs Middle School.

It's almost time for the school's annual trip to Washington DC.

Group coordinator, Mike Fisher has been chaperoning the trip since 1994.

He says eighth graders are the perfect age to learn about our nation's capital.

Fisher says they've seen it in movies and read about it in books but no words can describe their faces when they see it in person.

"It's a really great opportunity for the kids to know our nation's capital which, in my opinion, is the most powerful city in the world.   There's more decisions made there in five seconds than in most states in five years," says Fisher. 

The trip isn't free but is open to all eighth graders who wish to see DC.
