History Club

Mission-The mission of the Rochester Jr-Sr High School History Club will be to bring history to life through hands on activities while at the same time allowing students to learn about historical events that they may not have the opportunity to discuss about in class. 
Club Activities- I
n addition to monthly meetings, we will meet several times throughout the year to work on special projects, attend lectures on interested topics, field trips to historical sites, organize special ceremonies, fundraise for historical preservation, watching history themed movies and documentaries, and reading and writing about historical events. Meetings may occur on a weekly basis or as needed.

Gettysburg Trip 2013
On Thursday, May 16th the History Club will join the Rochester 8th grade on a trip to visit America's most revered battlefield, Gettysburg.  The cost of the trip is $60 and will include a chartered coach bus, a Civil War-period buffet, and touring costs.  Students will be required to pay for their own lunch that afternoon.  Students may bring money as we will be going through the Visitor's Center shop.  There will be a Salsa fundraiser to alleviate the cost of the trip.  Students will sell the salsa for $6 and earn $2.75 for each jar of salsa that they sell.  The final payment will be due on Friday, April 19th.  If parents have any questions, feel free to call my extension 1905 or send me an e-mail at weissm@rasd.org.
