National History Day

The 10th graders created some incredible "Taking a Stand" projects, this year's National History Day theme. Students worked individually or in groups to select a topic and conduct extensive research to connect the topic to the theme. Students then chose a medium to express their learning: exhibit, documentary, website, or performance. Despite delays from snow, the school judging and exhibition occurred before February break. Winners will be moving onto the regional competition on March 4th!
