Jacksboro students completed another successful tour of our nation’s capital this July. Children ranging in age from prekindergarten to middle school went with friends and family for four pleasantly cool days in Washington, D.C. and Williamsburg, Virginia.

The trip included a guided tour of the Capitol and time in many of the Smithsonian Museums. The evening tours of the Vietnam, Korean, FDR, WWII, Lincoln, and Jefferson memorials were beautiful. The group also enjoyed the Kennedy Center and Ford’s Theater where President Lincoln was shot. The massive Iwo Jima Marine Corps and Air Force memorials were a sight to see.

Four members of the JES Gifted and Talented group participated in a wreath laying ceremony in Arlington National Cemetery. Jacksboro’s Academic Booster Club purchased the beautiful red, white and blue wreath with “Jacksboro, Texas” written on the ribbon.
