Academic Decathlon Team Results

The 2018-2019 Academic Decathlon Team came to an exciting and impressive finish for a young inexperienced team. The 1960’s, A Transformative Decade, led us to explore Modern Art, the Vietnam War, Civil Rights, Lasers, Rock & Roll, the Cold War Economy and more. We attended Lecture Day in Madera with college professors, the Crocker Art Museum for a focused tour, and a scrimmage with 400 high-schoolers in Sacramento! We ate Vietnamese food, watched a play, tie-dyed team shirts, wrote speeches and essays, and studied. Our high school team included our Honors’ level of Team Captain, Junior Alexa Hughes who won Bronzes in Art & Social Science; Freshman Trillium Wright who won Golds in Music and Language & Literature and Silver in Economics; and Senior Trinity Walter who won Silver in Essay and Bronze in Economics. The Scholastic level was comprised of Freshman Veda Dean who won Gold in Music and Bronzes in Art, Social Science, and Language & Literature. Our Varsity level was made up of Freshman Eva Estes who won Golds in Art, Language & Literature, Social Science, and Music; and Freshman Annabelle Lampa who won Golds in Art and Economics and Bronze in Music. Thanks to Coach, Rose Justi and Instructors Kathleen Lewis, Ellen Davison, Melissa Ratkovich, & John Kenny. Interested in joining our team for next year? Look for signups in May, or call Rose Justi X2255.

San Andreas Share Day

Our annual Share Day is just a week off and we presently have eight students signed up to participate. We have songs, a slideshow and a couple of hobby displays.
I'm planning to share a song that I wrote in a graduate school class in human development instead of writing yet another research paper. It will include a different hat for each verse so I'm looking for a student to help me that can reach up to about 6 feet to change the hats; let me know if you are interested in helping me out.
Please join us and sign up in the library if you would like to participate in showing, telling about or performing in some way to make our program more fun and interesting.
