On the road with Meadow Park Elementary

Terry McMahon and the students of Meadow Park Elementary are on their way to Washington DC.  They are going to be providing us with updates as their trip progresses so stay tuned!

From Leilani – Right now we are on the bus watching a movie. There are still eleven hours until we arrive at the hotel. I am having a blast and I can’t wait to get to Washington.

From Mr McMahon – Greetings parents,

We’ve made good time so far and we are in South Carolina. We have changed bus drivers and we now have Mary Jo as the boys’ bus driver and Barbara as the girls’ bus driver. They tell us to expect snow tomorrow so the kids are really excited! We will stop in about 90 minutes to have lunch. The kids are having a great time. I will update after lunch.

From Leilani (1:25pm) – We have just gotten back on the bus from Wendy’s, where we had a delightful meal. Now there are only eight more hours until we arrive at the hotel. I am anxious because I cant wait to visit all the monuments.

From Mr McMahon – Good afternoon parents. We just finished eating lunch in Santee, S.C. and we are about 90 minutes south of the North Carolina border. The weather has been great and we haven’t had to put any sweaters or sweatshirts on yet. Everyone is doing well and enjoying some videos as we continue to travel north towards our destination.

From Mr McMahon (8:17pm) – Good evening parents. We had a great dinner at Golden Corral. We are about 2 hours away from the hotel. The kids are crazy happy about tomorrow’s forecast which calls for snow tomorrow. I’ll update the website after everyone is settled in at the hotel.
