7th Grade Meets Senator Ben Cardin

During the Middle School Learning Festival this year, the Seventh Grade paid a visit to the Capitol in Washington, DC and to Senator Ben Cardin. The visit dovetailed well with the 7th Grade curriculum which includes a unity on Civics. Senator Cardin specifically made time in his busy schedule, and met the 7th Graders at the Russell Senate Office Building. After a brief overview of the latest goings-on in the Middle East and how they affect us, Senator Cardin took questions from the students. This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity (though we hope not!) and brought home the importance of how special our form of government is.
