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.

White and Blue team Scholars Bowl students are reminded to wear their Scholars Bowl shirts tomorrow.  We will host Pizitz Middle School tomorrow at our school.  Parents attending will need to park on the west side of the school since the front lot is being paved this week.

I will be out at PAL, but will return for the tournament.

The team did well at their first tournament against Simmons.  We didn’t win, but the kids were great at buzzing in and answering questions.  We were only 5 points behind in the first match!

Our tournament this week is at Chelsea.  Parents will need to pick up at 2:45 and transport their child to the Middle School.  If you can’t drive your own child, please secure a driver for them.

Chelsea Middle School  2321 Hwy 39 Chelsea, Alabama 35043
