Washington DC Trip

An 8th Grade Tradition


Help an 8th Grader Get to
Washington DC!



Why Visit Washington DC?

Manzanita is one of only a handful of schools in the West Contra Costa Unified School District that offers an annual 8th Grade Washington DC trip. This rite of passage is something Manzy students look forward to beginning in the 6th grade. The trip offers powerful first hand experience of what these young people have studied in their history class throughout their 8th grade year. The Manzanita study trip connects ours students to Washington, D.C., the heart of American politics. Students get the opportunity to connect with our nation's history and culture as they take in the museums, monuments, and memorials. And of course, walk along Capitol Hill, the place that's shaped our past, present, and future.

How You Can Help

For many Manzy students, the majority of whom are first generation American citizens, this is the first opportunity to travel out of the state and the only chance they may ever have to see this part of the country. It is their moment to be awed and proud. As Manzanita is a public charter school, every child has the right to participate in the trip regardless of monetary constraints. The students, their families, and the school staff put great effort into completing various fundraising projects throughout the year.

It is important that we are all involved but it is not enough. It is our hope that you will find this trip of great value for our students and that you will support us in any way you can. In an effort to make this trip affordable to each and every one of our very deserving students, your donation will go directly to a student who, without this support, would not be able to participate. Any amount is truly appreciated. Thank you!
