Field Trip: Richard Nixon Presidential Library


Field Trip To the Richard Nixon Library

Monday, January 26, 2015

8am to 2:30pm

Some important details about the trip:

We will be studying the power of a speech through President Nixon’s address to the Nation on the war in Vietnam.  Are goal is for students to see the power a speech can make in moving others to believe and do what is needed.  At the museum we will discover a broader view of Nixon’s influence as our 37th President.

We will be meeting at the school at 8am and leave as soon as possible for the Library.  We should arrive back around 2:30pm.  Your student may be picked up at the regular time.

We will be eating at Lamppost Pizza for lunch, this will include all you can eat pizza and drinks.

I am asking each student to wear his or her DRCS T-shirt or sweatshirt.  If you do not own a DRCS T-shirt please dress respectfully.

Each student will need to bring $10 for lunch and to cover the cost of the trip.

Each adult attending will also need to bring $10 for lunch and the cost of the trip.

Drivers are needed, so please let us know if you are interested.
