Mary McLeod Bethune Elementary School is the The New Orleans Chapter’s partner school. The Chapter hosts and sponsors many activities for the students during the school year. One of the 2018 end of the year activities we were more than happy to assist with was the 8th grade trip to Washington, DC. The chapter assisted with cost associated with 2 students’ trip and contributed to meals for the group.
The 8th graders visited monuments in Washington DC, The National Mall, The Capital, The U. S. Supreme Court, The Smithsonian Museum for African American History, Arlington, Alexandria and Mt. Vernon Virginia.
