    “To study history means submitting yourself to chaos, but nevertheless retaining your faith in order and meaning.”

    Herman Hesse 

    “Ultimately history encourages us to be more compassionate toward individuals navigating few choices, and history cautions us to be far more critical of institutions and structures that have the power to take choices away.” 

    Marcia Chatelain

    Welcome to the RFH Social Studies Department!  We are excited to be able to examine, analyze, and discuss these unprecedented times and political, economic, and social issues through historical and modern perspectives in class! The staff is excited to work and collaborate with colleagues, the community, parents, and students for a productive, safe, and successful school year.  We look forward to making this school year another wonderful experience for all.
