Mock Trial Competition:
Please congratulate both Mock Trial Teams for their hard work at the Regional Competition held on February 9th at the Regional Justice Center. Both teams had members who received Best Witness and Best Attorney awards by their peers from other Schools. Team Sunday came in 5th place, narrowly missing going to State. The top 4 teams go on to the State competition. They were tied in number of rounds won, number of ballots won with the 4th place team. The tie breaker came down to just a few points. What a phenomenal job for a team comprised of mostly students who had never done Mock Trial before! The teams were coached by Ms. Sarada Toomey, Ms. Marcie Sherman, Mr. Ben Nemec, and Mr. Michael Coggeshall.
Team Sunday: Elisabeth Kac, Sarah Blank, Samantha Hamburg, Zach Murray, Jonah Tecktiel, Itai Blank, Liahm Blank, Micah DeLeon, Owen Retzer
Team Pride Period: Ore Inbar, Jayda Gilmore, Mordeccai Shirit, Eli Rahim, Eden Simhayoff, Michelle Poura, Rosie Polonsky
After taking first place in their respective grade-level competitions at Adelson Educational Campus Championships, Jacob Coneh, Ethan Saunders, and Jack Kim went on the city-wide spelling bee for independent and charter schools. While Jacob Coneh and Ethan made it through two rounds of competition, Jack Kim--our overall Adelson champ--made it through four rounds! Kudos to these students for putting themselves up against outstanding competition from area independent and charter schools!
