April 28, 2013, at the University of Mary Washington, Jazmine Shaw, Lawrence Jackson, and Brandon Carter competed for Caroline High School against 3 other area schools for the Black History Quiz Bowl. The other schools that competed were Riverbend High School, James Monroe High School, and Courtland High School. Our students finished in 1st place. The received certificates and a cash award for their hard work in the competition.
On Thursday April 18, the seventh and eighth graders took a trip over to Earth Day at AP Hill Military Base. The students enjoyed environmental exhibits, a nature trail and displays of military vehicles. I know that several students got to dress in bomb squad gear, and tour inside military helicopters. The environmental exhibits were wonderful, giving away trees for the students to plant and peaking their curiosity about the world around them. Thank you AP Hill for a fantastic day.
