Upcoming Events

Constitution Day

Constitution Day commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787. Schools are encouraged to celebrate the day by presenting a lesson focused on the Constitution. In Delaware, we hope to present a special lesson focused on the "Rule of Law" and present it in our high schools on September 16 and during the week of September 19 - 23. We are identifying Attorneys and Judges who will work with classroom teachers to present the lesson which was developed by ICIVICS, Inc. Please contact us at delrecntr@aol.com if you are interested in hosting a visitor. To obtain a copy of the Lesson Plan and the Student material, click here
