Congratulations to our 7th graders who competed in Nazareth Academy’s annual math competition on March 7. Our students took first place in the lightening round team competition. They took second place in the overall team competition. Alex P. won fourth place in the individual competition. There were 100 competitors from more than a dozen schools! Celtics excel!
On February 9 we had two seventh grade teams compete in the Nazareth Academy Scholastic Bowl. We were represented by Ian, Ethan, and Brayden on one team while Logan, Ryan O., Luke, and Tyler competed on a second team. Sixteen teams competed in all subject areas including fine and performing arts. Both teams made it to the Final 8, then onto the Final four. The students did a great job!
On Friday, September 23, the St. Alphonsus/St. Patrick School Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society inducted eight new members. Our Principal, Ms. Payne and the NJHS advisors, Mrs. Teri Lerch and Mr. Joel Munyon, along with the current members, welcomed the new inductees in a formal ceremony that celebrated the qualities that are the hallmarks of the society. Student members resolved to carry out the five pillars of Character, Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Citizenship. The new inductees included eighth graders Ela S. and Tatiana S..and seventh graders Luke A., Vince C., Ian M., Scarlett O., Julia P., and Alex P. They were ushered into the NJHS by our existing eighth grade members Christopher C., Paige C., Abigail G., William G., Connor K., and Ryan M.
True to the mandate given to these young people during their induction, our NJHS students strive to be "servant leaders". NJHS members work throughout the year to foster the touchstones of NJHS by sponsoring projects that benefit the community, our parishes, and St. Alphonsus/St. Patrick School. We are very proud of these hard-working students.
