U.S. History & American Government teacher Drew Lunt has spent 4 great days with 9 Sage High Schoolers touring and learning in Washington DC! They visited the Lincoln Memorial, MLK Memorial, Mount Vernon, Jefferson Memorial, the White House, the Capitol and Iwo Jima. He’s planning another trip for Fall Break 2023 if your high schooler is interested, stay tuned!
Sage 7th graders took a long but important educational field trip to the Minidoka National Historic Site in Jerome. They learned why it was built, and about the nearly 120,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans who were forced into 10 isolated war relocation centers like this across the United States during WWII. Students learned the stories of those who spent part of their lives incarcerated there, and the part they play in Idaho and US History.
