The Rochester Memorial School 6th Grade visited the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston yesterday.
The weather was sunny and warm and the students had a great day exploring the museum. The day started with a fairly long bus ride for the students, teachers and chaperones. We arrived at the museum at 10am and the students were divided into groups of 10. Each group was given a museum tour guide who walked us through the museum pointing out areas of interest and answering all the students’ questions. One of the guides was familiar to many of the students and teachers at RMS. It was Jay Ryan, former principal at RMS. It was great to see him again and some of the students were lucky enough to have him as their tour guide. We were then set loose to explore on our own. The bejeweled mirror room was a great favorite with all the kids as well as the Egyptian exhibit with the tombs and actual mummies.
Then it was time for lunch and another long ride home back to Rochester. It was a great field trip and a great day. The sixth graders are looking forward to the end of the school year with a Martha’s Vineyard Trip, the Sixth Grade dance and Graduation. It sounds like a great end to their RMS years.
