Library of Congress, Supreme Court, Hockey, White House, and More...

Supreme Court
8th Grade students in Washington DC continue to have an amazing visit.  Yesterday,  they completed  a tour of the Capitol Building, and had quick stops at the Library of Congress and the Supreme Court buildings.   They also spent time at the Ford Theatre and the Lincoln Museum.  Their day concluded with a hockey game at the Verizon Center - the Washington Capitals vs. the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Today, students visited the Newseum, followed by a walk down Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House.  Afterwards, they spent time at the World War II Veterans Memorial. The World War II Memorial honors the 16 million who served in the armed forces of the U.S., the more than 400,000 who died, and all who supported the war effort from home.  Kadima students were fortunate to witness an Honor Flight Chicago ceremony and meet a WWII veteran. Honor Flight Chicago is a non-profit organization that raises funds to commemorate WWII Veterans, in order to fly them to Washington DC and honor them as veterans.   To learn more about Honor Flight Chicago, visit veterans
