State Champs!

The Regents Academy TAPPS Speech and Academics Team is 1A state champion again!

The team competed at the TAPPS championship meet on Monday and Tuesday, March 23-24, in Waco. This is the third (third!) straight year the Regents team has won the state championship. We are so very, very proud of them. They are bright, talented, devoted, and they work great together as a team. The hard work that goes into their preparations is on top of their school work, music, sports, and the many other things they are involved in. Congratulations, students! Congratulations also to Nicole Alders, Shannon Henry, Kelsey Treusdell, and Ashley Bryant, who worked very hard to help the team prepare.

Reading Contest Winners

Huge congratulations to the winners of our 5th grade reading contest, Anna Claire Powers and Carolyn Young. The contest is sponsored by the Nacogdoches Fire Department. The first and second place winners received gift bags. Also, the first place winner rides to school in a fire truck and eats breakfast with the firemen. Anna Claire just barely edged out  Carolyn to win the contest by reading the most during the month of February. Pictured are the girls with Captain Michael Self.

Great job, girls!
