KINDERGARTEN UPER STUDENT OF THE WEEK
Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird... it's a plane... no, it's our Kindergarten Super Students of the Week... Emma (from last week) and Joel (this week)! Totally terrific, superkids! Now go save the world! Up, up, and away!
SECOND GRADE STUDENT OF THE WEEK
Congratulations go out to Mary, the Second Grade Student of the Week! Definitely the pride of Mrs. Westover's classroom, no doubt! What a classy and great second grader! As 7th grader Xavier would say in French, "C'est très bien!"
SCHOOL SPOTLIGHT: ACADEMIC CHALLENGE
Last week was rife with two grueling back-to-back competitions for our Academic Challenge team! On Thursday, February 26th, the team travelled to St. Mary School in Akron for our second (of three) meets, in which the team amassed 270 points and placed them in second place overall. Two days later, on Saturday, February 28th, the team headed to Copley High School for a NAQT Invitational tournament. Our St. Mary team did well, considering they just learned the intense NAQT format that morning, did not know what to expect, and never practiced the types of questions like the rest of the whopping 28 teams there (including Edgewood!). The kids tied for 3rd place in our bracket, and ranked 13 overall. Congratulations go out to John Gorman (who ranked in the top 10 amongst over 120 total students), Peter Goebel, Nathaniel Lewis, Madelin Dyer, Isabel Smith, Hannah Watson, and Nithya Gurumurthy!
