The 5th graders at Meadow Lands Elementary have worked hard to raise the money needed for a class trip to Washington D.C.  Their hard work and determination paid off this week as the class boarded a bus and headed for the Nations Capitol.

Principal Kevin Lowe (no relation) has attempted to keep us updated by posting some great pictures on this blog, I suggest all family, friends and interested people check it out.

Mr. Lowe was on the Joe lowe Morning Show Friday morning on 1490womi. He talked about the 8+ miles the students and chaperones walked on Thursday and about the busy day ahead today before boarding the bus and heading home late tonight.

This is one trip that will be talked about for many many years. The Nations Capitol is a wonderful experience for kids and adults alike. Perhaps a few or our 1490WOMI families will want to consider taking a spring break or summer trip to D.C. this year?

If you do be sure to contact either Senator McConnells office or Congressma Guthrie's office in advance to see if they can help with Capitol and White House tours. The FBI is another great tour.
