4th Grade Study Trip to Sacramento  
On Thursday, April 29,  fourth grade students went on a field trip to Sacramento. We met at Ontario Airport at 5:30 A.M. First we met our tour guide, Michelle. We got on a bus and drove to Old Town Sacramento. We saw the American River, walked around the town, and even rode on a stage coach. We also visited an old school room from the 1800's. One of the best parts was the stop at Candy Heaven, where I tried a REAL chocolate covered cricket! After Old Sacramento, we rode the bus to the Capitol building and toured the place where the California laws are made. Then we headed to Sutter's Fort, ate at Old Spaghetti Factory, and saw a magic show. The next day, we got back on the bus and drove to the Nimbus Fish Hatchery, where we fed the fish. Next, it was up to Coloma to pan for gold on the American River. Unfortunately, I didn't find even one flake of gold, nor silver, nor copper. So most of us just went to a gift shop and bought little bottles of gold flakes. Finally, we went back to the airport, ate a quick dinner, and boarded the plane back to Southern California. We were all met by hugs, kisses, and words of kindness from our families. Home, sweet, home!
