Did you happen to notice that the far end of the Lower School hallway was unusually quiet last Thursday? The main reason was that the fifth and sixth graders went on a day long trip to Atlanta, Georgia. They left at 5:45 am on charter buses and toured various places in Atlanta. First, they visited the Cyclorama, where they saw a huge painting that literally moved around them, explaining the Civil War in great detail. From there, they ate at the famous Varsity restaurant - known for being loud, crowded, awesome onion rings, and cool orange shakes.
After they ate, they headed to Turner Field- home to the Atlanta Braves baseball team. They had a behind the scenes tour and actually got to walk on the field and go to the Brave's Dugout. It was totally cool to realize they were sitting where players like Chipper Jones sat! To end the trip, they went to the World of Coke. This amazing place told of the history of Coca-Cola in a very fun way. The students enjoyed watching a very interactive 4 dimensional movie. Then they were treated to try the 100s of flavors that Coca Cola has created over the years. The fifth grade would like to especially thank Mrs. Walters for planning such an AWESOME trip!
