Chichester High School Chapter Leads Constitution Day Events
Students within the Chichester High School chapter of Rho Kappa organized the educational experience of Constitution Day to all Chichester High School students. School districts across the nation acknowledge Constitution Day based on its ratification on September 17, 1787. Not only does the Social Studies Department at Chichester High School educate students on the anniversary of its ratification, but also participates in a Constitution Day activity involving the signing of a school Constitution and receiving pocket Constitutions from the National headquarters in Philadelphia. Students from Rho Kappa Members reviewed facts pertaining to the Constitution to all Social Studies classes, managed the event, and administered the signing of a school Constitution.
Social studies educators teach students the content knowledge, intellectual skills, and civic values necessary for fulfilling the duties of citizenship in a participatory democracy. The mission of National Council for the Social Studies is to provide leadership, service, and support for all social studies educators.
