We are so excited to share that CDS now has a Rho Kappa chapter. Rho Kappa National Social Studies Honor Society is the only national organization for high school juniors and seniors that recognizes excellence in the field of Social Studies. With a vision of "A world in which all students are educated and inspired for lifelong inquiry and informed civic action," the National Council for the Social Studies and Carrollwood Day School could not be more aligned.
On the morning of November 9th, CDS Upper School Humanities teacher, Natalie Contreras, initiated seven seniors and one junior into the inaugural Rho Kappa chapter class at CDS. The requirement for initiation is 2 years in a humanities course and currently enrolled in a third, 4.2 overall GPA, and a member of a social studies club that has a competition level (Model UN or History Club).
Congratulations Patriots. We are so proud to watch you continue to raise the bar for our school.
Thank you to upper school humanities teacher, Natalie Contreras, for facilitating this honor society and induction ceremony and for serving as the academic advisor.
