Eighth Grade Sacramento Field Trip “Step Into California History”

Eighth Grade Sacramento Field Trip
“Step Into California History”

There is no better way to learn about our rich California history than to experience it. That is precisely what our eighth grade students did. In April and May, 282 eighth grade students from all the OMSD middle and K-8 schools set out for a five-day field trip to Sacramento and San Francisco. This is the eighth year for this trip after a two-year hiatus due to COVID. The trip continues to grow each year to the point that two trips are now taken. This year Central, De Anza, Edison, Serrano, and Vineyard Schools attended Trip #1, April 24th to 28th. Oaks, Vernon, Vina Danks and Wiltsey schools attended Trip #2, May 1st to 5th. 

In the Sacramento area, students toured the State Capitol Building, Old Town Sacramento, Sacramento State University, Marshall Goldfield Discovery Park and they rafted on the American River. In San Francisco students toured Alcatraz Island, rode the Cable Cars and visited Pier 39.

This was an amazing adventure for our OMSD eighth grade students. It will be a memory that will not soon be forgotten by these students.
