The Portsmouth Abbey Summer Program students spent a wonderful 4th of July on campus with games and a showing of "National Treasure" in the afternoon and a cookout and fireworks in the evening! Yesterday we went to Boston and explored parts of the Freedom Trail, a historic walking tour, before eating lunch and walking around Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market. We cannot believe that we are already finished with the first week of the program, time flies when you are having fun!
This past weekend we went to Providence Place Mall on Saturday, and Six Flags New England on Sunday. Needless to say, the students were exhausted when we got home, but it was well worth it! Stay tuned for photos from these events!
Almost the end of the first week!! Settling in to classes along with fun activities and field trips to Providence, Water Country water park. On to Boston and the New England aquarium and Faneuil Hall tomorrow! #standout
