In early May St. Mary's fourth graders went on their annual Lincoln Trip. This adventurous and educational trip included the State History Museum, the State Capitol, Morrill Hall; we had to see our state fossil the Woolly Mammoth, and our last stop was Gretna's Holy Family Shrine. It was a long day, but the experience will last a lifetime.
This trip provides exceptional curriculum support for Social Studies and Religion. The students were in awe of how what we discussed in class was there in front of them; history came alive and we spent time in prayer in thanksgiving at the end of our day while at the Holy Family Shrine.
