The TFS Class of 2018 left bright and early Monday, February 26th, for their eighth grade trip to our nation’s capital. The trip to Washington, D.C. is an annual tradition for our graduating class. The class and chaperones gathered at 5:45 AM at TFS and were greeted by Fr. Steve Kluge and Fr. Jim Sabak. Fr. Jim sent the students and chaperones off by giving a blessing to each bus as the groups boarded.

Highlights of the trip included a visit to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, paying respect at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, a visit to the Air and Space Museum at Dulles Airport, a tour of the Newseum, lunch at the Lincoln Memorial, and Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. The trip offers a time of learning, paying respect to our nation’s fallen heroes, and a time of reflection and bonding for the students.
