In today’s news…

After many weeks of research, including trips to the University of Minnesota, interviewing experts and participants in history, and reading countless sources and documents, US History students are ready to show off their finished History Day products today. An Open House is scheduled tonight from 6:00-8:00pm to celebrate the great work of our history scholars.

History Day is an annual project in the 11th grade Social Studies curriculum that gives juniors an opportunity to become expert historians by selecting and researching a topic of their choice around a national theme, which this year is “Taking A Stand in History.”

Students can demonstrate their research through exhibits, documentaries, performances, websites, and research papers.

Students are invited to apply now for one of these upcoming Lasallian Ministry-sponsored service immersion opportunities. Click the link to see more about and apply for the experience:
