Historical society seeks help from teachers

Highlands Ranch group looking to launch student outreach for 2019

Posted

The Highlands Ranch Historical Society is looking for teachers to provide their experience and ideas for a new project the society is hoping to launch in 2019.

The historical society's board reviewed its projects and decided that an outreach to students in the Highlands Ranch area would be a positive contribution to its offerings, according to a news release from the society.

The society now has a project directed at third- and fourth-grade students. That project takes place in September when the community celebrates Highlands Ranch Days. Historical society volunteers display antique items, animal pelts and turn-of-the-century clothing. The three-day event at the Highlands Ranch Mansion reaches 1,600-plus students, who get to spend time dressing up and learning history.

The historical society would like to extend its focus on Highlands Ranch students beyond this one annual event. Existing and retired teachers willing to share their knowledge and familiary with working with students are asked to attend a round table meeting to discuss the project. The meeting is Oct. 25 at Eastridge Recreation Center. It starts at 11:30 a.m., and a light lunch will be served.

To RSVP and for further information, contact Paul McKeag, vice president of the historical society, at paul@thehrhs.org. Those unable to attend but who have ideas to share are asked to send suggestions to McKeag via email.
