MUS Students at the Capitol

MUS 5th graders on the steps of the Capitol building in Washington, D.C.

(The following was sent to us from MUS board member Gwyn Lurie.)

This is a picture of the fifth-grade children from Montecito Union School on the steps of the Capitol building in Washington, D.C. The students went on their colonial trip last week and also visited Jamestown, and Williamsburg, Virginia, and Philadelphia. 

This trip has become something of a rite of passage for Montecito students who anxiously await fifth grade to go. For years, the journey has been run by fifth-grade teacher Doug Bower, who will be retiring in June after 24 years of teaching at MUS. Superintendent Anthony Ranii also attended this year‘s excursion. 

The accompanying photo takes place outside the Capitol with Congressman Salud Carbajal, Democrat from California and Congressman Steve Stivers, Republican from Ohio (also a cousin of longtime MUS teacher Vicki Harbison). In the middle of the two members of Congress is Montecito parent and Montecito Association member Cori Hayman. A nice bi-partisan moment!
