4th Grade Travels to Solvang

History came to life this week as the Class of 2028 traveled on their first overnight trip to Solvang, California. 

Our 4th grade student's first stop was at La Purisima mission where docents dressed in clothing from the 1800’s, taught students about mission life. From making a nail in the blacksmith shop to learning how to turn wool into yarn and then weave it into a blanket, the students were mesmorized. Later, the class ventured to a second mission in Santa Inez where they went on a mission scavenger hunt. The day ended with dinner at the world famous Pea Soup Anderson’s and games in the park.

On the second day, students visited the Santa Barbara Presidio, one of four presidios in California. Seeing the cannons that the Spanish soldiers used to protect California’s coast was their most memorable sight of the tour. The trip ended at the beautiful Santa Barbara Courthouse where students and parents enjoyed lunch and shared their memories of the trip.
