St. Paul students advance to state
THORNDALE— It wa s a record breaking year for St. Paul Lutheran School at the PSIA competition on Feb. 22 in Giddings. They entered 81 events for the competition and came away with 52 ribbons and have advanced in 20 events for State competition later in May. The school also placed second in district, the best ever finish for the school overall.
PSIA stands for Private School Interscholastic Association. It is an academic competition for home schools, parochial schools and private schools. The district competitions take place from February to March all over the state of Texas. The next step in the competition is State held in Fort Worth.
St. Paul also had two pilot programs. These are being offered by some Districts with the understanding that you can’t go to State since they are not official competitions, yet. They were Mathematics for 2nd and 3rd grades and Number Sense for 2nd and 3rd grades.
