Academic Decathlon Results 3/6/2021

Hello Falcons!

 

The SPAS Decathlon team has spent every Tuesday and Friday after school working together preparing for the Academic Decathlon (AJHD) competition. They practiced teamwork and communication on top of learning anything from high level math concepts to obscure grammar rules to what Pope John Paul II’s signal was for when he wanted a cookie.

 

This Saturday our Academic Decathlon team competed against schools from all around the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and Sacramento (200 Catholic schools). Our team has worked so hard since the beginning of the school year and it is great to see their hard work pay off.
