Marcus-Meridan-Cleghorn fifth graders, along with fifth grade teachers Ric Collins and paraeducators Judy Gravenish and Deb Mayer, enjoyed an exciting field trip at three locations in Sioux City on Friday, May 28.

The first stop for the fifth graders was at the Lewis and Clark Interpretation Center where the fifth graders learned about the journey of Lewis and Clark on the Missouri River in the Sioux City area.

The students then walked to the Sergeant Riverboat Museum, named after Sergeant Charles Floyd who is buried at the Floyd Monument in Sioux City on a bluff overlooking the Missouri River. Floyd was the only member of the Lewis and Clark expedition to die on the journey.

On the last stop of the field trip, MMC bus driver Steve Holmes took the group to the Ronald McDonald House. While there, the fifth graders presented them with 110 pounds of pop tabs that had been saved by the MMC district throughout the school year.

After a quick tour of the Ronald McDonald House, the group headed back to school, full of new knowledge about all they had seen and learned that day.
