The Rollings Middle School "Dream Chorus" took a field trip to New York City, during Spring Break, to perform at the Statue of Liberty. 2 buses full of 11-14 year olds and their parent chaparones left Charleston early Monday morning.
After a flat tire, and several bathroom breaks, we finally arrived at the Hampton Inn in Secaucus NJ shortly before midnight. On Tuesday we toured Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, Ground Zero and we went to the top of the Empire State Building.
After touring the Metropolitan Museum of Art we caught the Ferry to Ellis Island where the kids performed under "difficult" conditions at the Statue of Liberty. We then went to dinner and later to the Broadway Show, "All Shook Up" which was awesome.
We left New York early Thursday morning and spent another long day on the bus traveling back home to Charleston. We arrived back at Rollings sometime after midnight a very tired bunch.
