In early November, the Savio Academic Team competed in a state-wide meet featuring several events such as Accounting, Calculator, Computer Science, Current Events, Literary Criticism, Mathematics, Number Sense, Science, Social Studies, and Spelling contests. This was a huge competition with over 6800 entries across the 10 events. 

Savio had at least one representative in each event, with eight students taking a total of 30 tests. Even with such a large field of competitors, Savio earned four team awards and 24 individual awards across six events!

Congratulations to the team, and a big thank you to the volunteer parent graders - Mrs. Miri, Mrs. Stepney, and Mrs. Abadie!
