Last month our students here at PHS had the opportunity to go visit some historical sights in Boston, Massachusetts.

They were able to tour Downtown Boston, South Church, Old City Hall,  Lexington and Concord and the Harvard Campus. They also went to many different museums like the USS Constitution Museum, Salem Witch Trial Museum, Bunker Hill Memorial, John Adams birthplace and mansion, Paul Revere's capture site and JFK’s library. They even were able to attend a Boston Celtics game! What a fun trip! Thanks to Mr. Wright and all the chaperones who made this trip possible.
