Recently, students of AP US Government and Politics traveled to Washington D.C. to apply course content to real-life settings. The trip was designed to give students a comprehensive view of the different branches of government and the role of the media. Students had the opportunity to meet with members of Congress, lobbyists, and media producers, offering them the opportunity to engage in Q&A sessions and to better understand how each component operates.
The trip to our nation’s capital embraced Saint Mary’s mission to prepare students for college and life. Students not only had the opportunity to see the course content in action, but they also made many connections and contacts in D.C., including opportunities for internships. This school trip also gave students exposure to a variety of job opportunities in the political realm.

In this article, Belles student newspaper staff members describe their takeaways from some of the sessions.
This week more than a billion people around the world will participate in Diwali festivities, often known as the Festival of Lights. One of the largest celebrations across India, this five-day celebration is marked by the lighting of dozens of candles and clay lamps or diyas throughout homes and streets to light up the dark. It can also involve some truly impressive fireworks displays!
The term Diwali derives from the Sanskrit term Deepavali, which originated over 2,500 years ago and literally means “row of lights.” Linked to multiple stories in religious texts, the festival centers around the triumph of good over evil, the movement to light from darkness, and each day holds a different significance. It is a time for families, friends, and neighbors to come together to share fellowship and enlightenment and to enjoy rich meals, exchange gifts, and give thanks for the blessings that everyone has.
