History Day

History Day 2016-2017

History Day at Fugman Elementary School is a unique opportunity for 4th – 6th grade students to research and present personally meaningful topics relating to an annual National theme and to examine history in a fun and challenging way.  Student winners in each category (2D displays, exhibits, historical papers, web sites, documentaries, and performances) may move onto the County competition in March. The 2016/2017 theme this year is Taking a Stand in History.

Interested students, please download and fill-out a grade-level appropriate letter of intent, and return it to a folder on the wall by Room 10, by Friday, October 14th. Our first History Day Meeting will take place on Monday, October 24, at 8:00AM in Room 10. Parents are always welcome!
