This week upper school students in several different grades took fun and educational field trips to have a day to recharge and collaborate before the final exam study period begins. Ninth graders visited SkyZone, a trampoline park in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Tenth graders went to an Escape Room and the Spy Museum in Washington, D.C., and eleventh graders attended The Frederick Douglass Project at AME Church. The play consists of two short plays, An Eloquent Fugitive Slave Flees to Ireland by African-American writer and local theatre star Psalmayene 24, and Wild Notes by award-winning Irish playwright Deirdre Kinahan, giving audiences a dual perspective on Douglass’ experience in Ireland. This production is proud to be supported by The Irish Embassy, The DC Commission for Arts & Humanities, and the Frederick Douglass Family Initiatives.
