"OUR STUDENTS HAD A BLAST!!!!! It was such a wonderful experience for my 4th and Vivian's 5th grade classes. Everything was organized and we were on track the entire day. Our trips leaders were all very efficient. I just wanted to add that just as we were leaving Sutter's Fort, the First Lady, Maria Shriver and her children were going inside. Some of the parents were able to sneak back in and talk to her. My plan for the future is to include a Sacramento trip with the 4th grade curriculum every school year. Thank you again for all your help."
