Griffins in DC


On the evening of November 16th, 62 of Garfield’s finest loaded up two coach buses and began the epic journey to our nation’s capitol. Three days of nearly non-stop touring and exploring as the sights became the classroom. Students were inspired, astounded, encouraged and humbled as they traversed monuments, museums, battlefields, and eternal resting places.

Four students had the honor of participating in the Wreath Laying Ceremony at the Tomb of the Unkown in Arlington Cemetary.  Evan Yost, Michael Middleton, Madison Risner, and Emma Kolstedt represented Garfield in a stellar manner as they demonstrated poise, character, and much honor. gms-washington-dc-2016-11-18-15-16-14-matt-w
