Students Visit Monticello

Mr. Harris and Mrs. Slater's 11th grade United States History students enjoyed a trip to Thomas Jefferson's magnificent home, Monticello! Some students took a driving tour of the University of Virginia and also had the opportunity to enjoy the early fall colors of the Charlottesville, Virginia area. Students exclaimed that they gained much "unexpected knowledge" from this field trip. After the tour one student declared, "I could feel the essence of Thomas Jefferson flow through me!"
