Over the past several
months, CCS 8th graders have been busy preparing for History Day.
Three of the projects advanced to a regional competition held at St. Kate's on March 24. Megan Wenner received 'honorable mention' and Luci Arnoldy, Matt Bitter, Eva Disimone and Allicia Moeller have advanced to the state competition in May. The students researched
their topics, visited museums, libraries and universities and conducted personal
interviews with professors, scholars and field experts. The project
is overseen by Carondelet history teacher, Alex Rome.
Congratulations to the 8th graders on their hard work!
