SJHS students, chaperones tour Boston

SHERIDAN — Thirty Sheridan Junior High School students, teachers, parents and grandparents traveled to Boston, Mass., from June 7-12 for a trip through American history.

The trip was organized and executed by history teacher Renel Ellis.

Students visited sites such as Boston’s Old North Church, Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market, Boston Commons and the Public Garden.

They toured the site of the Boston Massacre, the Bunker Hill Monument and the USS Constitution. They also visited the graves of legendary figures and followed the Freedom Trail through Boston.

The group also traveled to Lexington and Concord, sites of the first battles of the American Revolution.

They went to Salem to learn about the Salem Witch trials and to Plimoth Plantation to learn about the pilgrim’s settlement.

Students participated in candlepin bowling — the traditional bowling of Massachusetts — took in a theater performance, braved an evening ghost tour and enjoyed a whale watching expedition.
