Forty-two of Riverside Middle School's eighth grade students, along with seven parent chaperones and two teachers, participated in a five day American History tour over fall break.  

Oct. 16-Oct. 20, students traveled to Virginia to experience Jamestown (the site of the first permanent English settlement in America), Colonial Williamsburg (one of the original capitals of our nation), Yorktown (the site of the last battle of the Revolutionary War), and Richmond (which has many historical sites).

They participated in hands-on activities related to Native American and Colonial life and sat in the actual seats of St. John's Church where our ancestors listened to Patrick Henry recite his "Give me liberty or give me death" speech.

The trip also allotted time for fun activities such as a ghost tour of Williamsburg and a day at Busch Gardens during their Hallowscream event.
