Academic Team members should check Edmodo for regular club updates & communication.
The purpose of the Academic Team is to encourage interested & committed 7th-8th grade students to participate in fun, challenging quiz-bowl team events stressing the academic areas of science, social studies, mathematics literature and current events. Participation includes various levels of the PAGE Academic Bowl competition, the Georgia Academic Team Association middle school tournament, & other appropriate tournaments.
Competitions are held on Saturdays in the metro Atlanta area. Parents are responsible for transportation to & from competitions. Attendance is expected at practices in order to participate in competitions. Academic Team is open to 7th and 8th Grade Students through teacher recommendation and tryouts.

Please listen to the morning announcements for the date of the Academic Team informational meeting which will be later this month.
