Congratulations to the Sixth Grade Team for taking 2nd place at the Shelby County Tournament. You all did a great job showing your talents! Special Recognition goes to EB and GH for tying to earn the most points for our team.
Parents – I sent an email last night (Monday) with information for our County Tournament scheduled on Wednesday, February 7th. Please see below if you did not receive the email.
Our Sixth Grade won their first match against Helena. Way to go!!! I can tell that everyone is beginning to get the hang of listening to the questions and buzzing in to answer. Continue to work as a team and use each others strengths to score the most points.
We will NOT have practice tomorrow, November 28th due to the majority of the team going to band practice. We will resume next Tuesday as scheduled with a tournament hosted at home against Chelsea.
We are having a wonderful time competing with our neighboring communities. Although we haven fallen short of winning our matches, we have been able to improve at each one. We will continue to practice each Tuesday afternoon from 3-4:30.
Members will take home their Scholars Bowl T-Shirts this afternoon. These should be worn for tournaments and may be worn any other practice day.
Our next tournament is November 7th at Pizitz Middle School in Vestavia Hills. Please make sure you secure transportation for your child if you are unable to transport them yourself.
Please review the information that was provided at the Parent Meeting today and return the signed forms and donation check to me by this Friday.
I heard about a website for Scholars Bowl kids from another coach in the area. Try the link below for expanding your knowledge.
