February 10, 2020 by Susan Armendariz

We would like to congratulate our Junior High Academic Decathlon team on their success this past Saturday at our Deanery Decathlon.

For months now, the team, along with their mentor teachers, have been working hard towards their studies. Our team members are Hector B. (8th), Alan F. (8th), Julissa H. (8th), Jesus L. (8th), Edwin R. (8th), Sophia B. (7th), Alexia G. (7th), Dayana G. (7th), Alissa S. (7th), and our team captain, Daniel H. (8th).

This Saturday, our team competed against eight other schools in which Nativity placed 3rd overall! We also received placements in the following categories: 1st place in Group Logic Quiz, 1st place in English/Grammar, 2nd place in Mathematics, 2nd place in Science, 3rd place in Social Studies, and 3rd place in Current Events. 

We would like to acknowledge all individuals and their mentor teachers for their hard work thus far.
