The board also approved an overnight field trip for Parsippany Hills HS. Students Grade 8-12 are heading to the Junior States of America in Washington D.C. from Feb. 21-23. Thirty students will be staying at the Double Tree Hotel in Crystal City. The cost for parents came out to $270, with $80 of it going to transportation and $190 for admission and registration.

They will “engage in debates, write bills and perform duties similar to a U.S. Congressman” as well as “have the opportunity to fraternize, compete and debate not only with their contemporaries in the Mid-Atlantic Region, but with political leaders in our nation’s capital,” according to their overnight field trip approval form. The program is “a student-run simulation where students take on the role of members of Congress in order to better understand the legislative process by participating in it.”

This ties in with current curriculum. Freshmen and Sophomores are studying World History and US I, which includes government and constitutional issues. Juniors and Seniors are studying US II, civics and government, which includes constitutional issues.

To prepare for the trip, “each student team researches and develops a bill which is then submitted to a committee where the best bills are chosen based on a set criteria” and after the trip, students will analyze and debrief the research and debate process, continue practice of rhetoric and research skills and continue discussion of current events.
