Gettysburg and Washington, DC
Each year DeKalb Middle offers 8th-graders the opportunity to participate in a trip to Gettysburg and Washington, DC. The school sponsor, Ms. Vose, works with Classic Tours to coordinate the trip. The DC trip has been a staple at DeKalb Middle School for over thirty years and offers students the ability to experience history first hand as they walk the battlefields at Gettysburg, visit the Capitol building, and explore the memorials and monuments. The DC trip is currently scheduled over spring break, with students leaving the Friday that break begins and returning Wednesday morning. Interested students can contact Ms. Vose for more information on the current trip.
