The 8th graders have been working on their National History Day projects since December. Each student or group picked a topic relating to the theme Stand Up in History and since then conducted research and created documentaries, papers, websites, exhibits, and even one performance. This week, on February 7th, they celebrated their amazing work and explored American History through the wide variety of projects. 

Students took presentation posters to the next level with careful attention to detail that brought history to life.

 

On National History Day, the Middle School Lobby was transformed into a museum of activism and courageous social movements throughout history.

 

Students had the opportunity to share their projects with Head of School, Nanci Kauffman. Ms. Kauffman didn't disappoint and had excellent questions and comments for the presenters.

Ms. Pang's classroom was transformed into a mini documentary film festival screening for student projects.

Here, two students deliver an excellent performance detailing the storied and turbulent history of LGBT rights in our country from Harvey Milk to Ellen Degeneres' receipt of the Presidential Medal of Freedom...and beyond.
