Once again, the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade Academic Challenge teams have been working hard. Our district is the only Lorain County District that has students in Elementary and Middle Schools competing. Our students compete against students from Erie County. Students compete against other schools in the categories of math, science, social studies, geography, book study, and miscellaneous. The first Academic Challenge competition was held during the week of October 20th and the scores from that competition will be combined with a second round challenge for a combined grand total.
The competitions are at Sandusky Community Church of the Nazarene, 1617 Milan Rd, Sandusky. Parents, relatives, and friends are welcome to attend!
