Saturday March 24th, our middle and high school students competed at the Delaware National History Day. Students have been working on these research projects over many months, and even getting to compete at the state level is a tremendous achievement. Our students were amazing ambassadors of our school, and as you can see below, they were handsomely rewarded for all their hard work. We said it last year, but it is worth restating: the skills that our students have learned in their arts classes had a dramatic impact on their success. Students leveraged these skills in all their projects! As we move on to nationals in June, I hope you will get a chance to see some of these projects (and perhaps even offer some constructive feedback!).
