Jefferson Wins District Academic Bowl Championship!

 Thursday night, the JMS Academic Team competed in the final Quiz Bowl of the year. Our team scored a total of 100 points, finishing in 3rd place for the competition. This 3rd place finish, along with our three wins and one 2nd place finish, helped us maintain the large season points lead we had coming into the competition. We are now 2023-24 District Champions!!! Mr. Saunders thought we had dropped out of 1st place for the season after last night's competition. He also informed the team of this incorrect belief. So everybody on the team, coaches and parents included, were shocked and elated when we were announced the champion. Coach apologizes for the mistake. But, it was such incredible joy when we found out we won!!!! This season has been so much fun and Coach Saunders wants to thank this wonderful team for an amazing season. You deserve to be called champions.

                                        2023-24 Academic Team Champions:

6th graders: Aiden Grove, Luke Freeman, Evelyn Campos, and Giovany Medina

7th graders: Ellie Dobbs, Johnny Yee, Junior Maldonado, Sabina Condel, and Logan Keeley

8th Graders: Isabel Caudle, Ryan Harris, Isabella Cuevas, and Anna Petersen

Anna and Isabella leave the team being the only two team members that have been on two JMS  championship teams. Thank you for three seasons of great memories. I will miss all of my 8th graders so much next year. You were a pleasure to coach. Thank you for all the great memories.

Also, thank you to Coach Humenik (you earned your papers) and Ms. Blanco for helping us out with the math this month.
