Informational Parent Meeting about Summer 2021 China Trip

PHM Middle School China Trip April 2015

Since 2009, PHM students from all three middle schools have participated in the China Excursion, the most recent trip occurring in the spring of 2019.


This nine day trip planned for the summer of 2021 departs June 28 and returns July 6 (tentative dates). Students will tour historic sites in the cities of Beijing, Xi’an, and Shanghai, China. You can view some of the places explored in this slideshow. This experience will allow students to explore the ancient culture of China and also witness firsthand the country’s rapid development. The trip to China is aligned to seventh grade social studies standards that focus on imperial China, the Mongol Empire, European colonization, types of government, and trade. 


The China Excursion is open to any students currently enrolled in 6th or 7th grade at Discovery, Grissom, or Schmucker. If you are interested in learning more about this experience and itinerary, please plan on attending informational meeting …
