Through the support of the Paul M. Shatz and Deane Lee Shatz Charitable Foundation, Missouri teachers from grades 3-12 are invited to spend a Weekend with George Washington. This four-day immersive residential program at George Washington’s home, Mount Vernon, will provide an intensive study of George Washington and his world. The curriculum during October 10-13, 2013 includes discussions led by noted Washington scholars and hands-on workshops exploring Washington’s life and interests at Mount Vernon. Through study, discussion, tours, and projects, participants will gain a new and deeper understanding of the life and character of George Washington and his unique legacy in creating and shaping the principles of America’s democracy.
