St. Paul’s Inter-parochial School Takes First Place
Last Tuesday, March 13, 10 schools participated in the annual Academic Jeopardy held at Albertus Magnus High School in Bardonia, New York. Three seventh grade representatives from each school answered a wide variety of questions on topics from science, literature, social studies, pop culture, art, English, mathematics, and religion, each with it’s own challenges. The contest simulates the television game show, with seventh graders from the participating schools making up the audience.
The schools that participated were: Sacred Heart School in Suffern, St. Anthony’s School in Nanuet, St. Augustine’s School in New City, St. Gregory’s School in Garnerville, St. Margaret’s School in Pearl River, St. Paul School in Congers, St. Paul’s Inter-parochial School in Ramsey, New Jersey, and St. Peter’s in Haverstraw.
Academic First Place was earned by the glowing team of seventh graders, including Alison Rini, Nick Mesropyan and Robert Keller from St. Paul’s Inter-parochial School. St. Gregory’s School took home the First Place for Spirit, inevitably cheering the whole way home.
