A Field Trip to Remember...The National Museum of the Pacific War, Fredericksburg, TX

Each year students at Quest High School take a field trip to the Pacific War Museum to learn more about World War II and the men and women who served. This special event was surrounded by wonder and awe as the students were able to experience the small living quarters on a mini sub and view a fast attack boat like the one John F. Kennedy served on. After the museum students and staff headed to GattiLand in Fredericksburg for lunch and had a wonderful time. These are the authentic experiences that "Craft the Future" for our students in Burnet CISD. Thank you for supporting our fundraisers which make these experiences possible for our students.
