Program Overview

Dimensions in Social Studies supports school-wide and grade specific activities that enhance the social studies curriculum at SRS.  

Through a school-wide mock election students participate in the democratic process and learn about the important role that voting plays in a democratic society. On the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday students and their families have the opportunity to help fellow community members at service learning activities each year.


Activities take place at each grade level to support social studies lessons:

  • Grades 1 and 2 experience Asia Week-five days of activities and lessons on China, India, or Japan.
  • The annual African Dance celebration is the culmination of the 3rd grade unit on traditional African dances and their cultural significance.
  • Grades 4 and 5 study Native American cultures, which includes an annual trip to the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology for the 5th grade classes.

The dedication and hard work of the Dimensions in Social Studies chairs makes these activities possible year after year.  Home & School also provides funding every year to offset the costs of many of these treasured events and activities.
