Rho Kappa Honor Society planned many activities during Social Studies Week.

On September 17, 1787, the Constitution of the United States of America was signed marking the start of the government we know today. Last week Rho Kappa Social Studies Honor Society held their annual Social Studies Week in honor of the signing of the Constitution but also as a celebration of social studies around the world. 

“The social studies gives us a really unique lens into the world and understanding of the world, communities, and individuals, as well as the impact of those stories and they way we view the world around us,” said social studies teacher Roxanne Bristow. 

Senior Max Kreiger, a member of Rho Kappa, also talked about what Social Studies Week means to him and the importance of social studies. 

“It’s important to educate people on history and why it’s important, and bringing the school together around historical topics like the signing of the Constitution, but also other things throughout the year,” Kreiger said.

Rho Kappa Social Studies Honor Society will also be having many other events and themed weeks throughout the school year with other school organizations and will continue to celebrate and honor the importance of social studies.

“Rho Kappa is going to be doing a lot of things throughout the year. We are partnering with LSU on Hispanic Heritage Month. We’ll partner with other organizations in the school for other heritage months, and also other opportunities, members develop and launch themselves,” Bristow said.
