This year’s National History Day theme was”Taking a Stand in History.” Ms. Capati’s 8th and 9th grade students displayed their projects and were judged by teachers and upper grade students. Students worked in teams to complete a project about a person or event of their choice that illustrated the theme.
The winners for History Day have the opportunity to compete at the Kaua‘i History Day (Feb 25 at Island School), where they will compete against other middle and high school students across the island.
