SCHOOLS SANTA ELENA 2Bft El pointing to ship (2)In honor of the 450th commemoration of Santa Elena, Beaufort Elementary School participated in a parade to the Santa Elena History Center. The clouds parted and the sun shined brightly as 75 third grade students carried their flag posters down Bay Street.

The students spent time learning about the flags flying in front of the Santa Elena History Center. They also walked through the History Center learning about archaeology, history, art, and of course, the most popular, Spanish Galleon Ship.

The Santa Elena History Center aims to be an exciting field trip destination and educational resource for local and visiting students.
