Congratulations to our 7th and 8th grade teams who competed in the Dominican Academic Challenge last Friday and brought home individual, team and school awards:
- St. Mary Parish School took 2nd Place overall in the Dominican High School Academic Challenge!
- Out of 25 teams our 7th grade team placed 1st and our 8th grade team placed 4th!
- Individually, 7th grader, Alex N. took 1st place and Jenna H. placed third!
Students competed by taking a series of short tests in the areas of Science, Math, English, Religion, Social studies, Music, Fine Arts and World Languages. Individual scores were then combined to give the team scores. Students commented that they were well prepared for the experience having completed study in many of the areas such as a clay unit in Art, and acid and bases in Science.
Our school community is so proud of their accomplishments!
