District students in grades 6-8 demonstrated their academic prowess in a Middle School Quiz Bowl on May 11.
Organized by the East Rockaway Social Studies Leadership Committee, the event brought Centre Avenue and Rhame Avenue sixth-graders to the junior-senior high school to compete against students in grades 7 and 8. There were three rounds of competition, in which students answered questions in the subjects of geography, American history, Ancient Egypt and more. They also went head-to-head in speed rounds, earning additional points. The eighth-grade team won the competition with 190 points, earning the coveted “Golden Globe.” Congratulations to all the students on an outstanding job!
