2nd Annual History Day Competition
The Plymouth Public Schools Social Studies Department held the Second Annual History Day competition yesterday. The National History Day program is a rigorous independent research project in which students must choose a topic related to the annual theme, conduct extensive research using primary and secondary sources, and create a final product that tells the story of that topic, its relation to the theme, and its significance in history - no small feat!
Plymouth’s History Day competition is the culmination of seven months of research and synthesis by our hard-working and dedicated students from 9th, 10th, and 11th grade honors classes.
This year’s theme is Breaking Barriers in History; a theme that reminds us that progress is a compelling and ongoing narrative in our shared history. What are the ‘barriers’ we face as individuals and as a society? How do we break these? What do we gain by breaking barriers? Students told the story of their chosen topic through detailed exhibits, comprehensive websites, and captivating documentaries.
A job well done to all! Congratulations to the final winners who will be advancing to the South Shore History Day Competition at Foxboro High School in March.
We'd like to extend a very special thank you to Mr. Powers, Social Studies Coordinator; Kristen DiGravio, Educational Secretary; the North and South Social Studies teachers, and all of the judges, staff, volunteers, and sponsors for another successful History Day competition.

Foreign Language NHS
This year, 42 French students and 57 Spanish students, ranging from the third to fifth year of language study, have become members of the Foreign Language Honor Society. The newly inducted members will meet for the first time in early February to plan events and activities for Foreign Language week later this year. In addition and as needed, members will serve as peer tutors.
The student-elected co-presidents who represent each language's Honor Society this year are Adam Capozzi (French) and Caleb Kerr (Spanish). This year's delegates, selected by their teachers based on their exceptional language ability and pronunciation and who conducted significant portions of the ceremony in their respective languages, were Brooke Cayting (French) and Janelle Clancy (Spanish).
