(4th graders from Parkview Heights Elementary sing Beautiful Nebraska)
Throughout April and May, 4th-grade students across the Papillion La Vista School District got to go back in time to learn about Nebraska history on a field trip.
To bring Nebraska history to life, students toured the Portal School, Sautter House, and the historic courthouse in downtown Papillion.
Shirlee Walsh, a retired Papillion La Vista teacher, portrayed the one-room schoolhouse teacher. Students learned about what a typical school day was like and what types of learning tools were available to students at the time.
Members of the Papillion Historical Society and other local community and law enforcement volunteers gave students a tour of the Sautter House and historic courthouse.
The fourth graders rotated each hour through the three historic sights.
The field trip is funded through a grant received from the Papillion La Vista Schools Foundation.
The following is a schedule of when each school went on the field trip:
