Eighth Graders Celebrate Community at the Arch, City Museum, and Mississippi River

The fantastic MICDS class of 2026 celebrated their incredibly successful year with a field trip on Wednesday to the City Museum, the Gateway Arch, and the mighty Becky Thatcher riverboat on the Mississippi River. Fueled by positive energy and spirit, students took the time to catch up, reflect on their Middle School experience, visit with teachers, and simply celebrate what has truly been a great year.

MICDS eighth-grader, Jackson Abernathy ’26 summed up his day by saying, “It was an awesome time to be with friends and the class in general.” LJ Tripplett ’26 echoed that sentiment: “I cherish the moments I get to spend with my friends. I love this school and the focus on letting us just be us.”

Congratulations on a fabulous school year to our outgoing eighth-grade Middle Schoolers!
