Students in Ms. Vitucci and Ms. Sheehan’s classes at the Garden City Middle School recently participated in a local history tour led by John Ellis Kordes, Village Historian.
Mr. Kordes led four separate groups of eighth grade students on a fascinating tour around the village. The tour included the beautiful Cathedral of the Incarnation, which is just a stone’s through from the school itself.. The teachers planned the trip to help students learn about and appreciate the rich local history in Garden City. The interesting tour narrated by Mr.Kordes also helped students see how the growth and development of Garden City reflected and paralleled national developments.
