Ellis Students Visit DC

On May 17,  fifty-six eighth grade students from Ellis Middle School in Fremont, met with Rep Frank Guinta and were given to special tour of the Capitol.

This trip is the culmination of their eighth grade research project.  Each student became an expert on a monument, memorial, or landmark and were responsible for educating their peers.  In addition to the usual size and date facts, students were asked to delve deeper and speculate why their site represents America and American pride.
