What is History day?
Every year, CCA parents and staff work together to create a hands-on learning experience for our students. History Day themes are chosen each year in alignment with the time period our lower school students are studying.
When is History day?
Set up is on Thursday, February 8, 2018 from 12:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Event is on Friday, February 9, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. There are no electives.
What is the theme this year?
For the 2017-2018 school year, the theme is Revolutionary War.
What can I expect?
Your student will experience different activities, performances, games and food relating to the event’s theme.
What do I need to do?
Once you know the theme, we recommend parents begin working on their costumes. Parents, students and staff all dress in the time period we are recreating.
Every family at CCA volunteers to help make History Day possible. The Special Events committee and teachers will assign parents rolls to help create booths where the experiences take place. This happens through your assigned House. Check with your House Leaders to see how you can help. At the end of the event, all families are expected to help tear down the booths and clean up the school.
