The 4th grade class, with their teacher Mrs. Katrina Terrell, and the 8th grade class, with their teacher, Mrs. Sherry Wiggins, celebrated their studies of the Medieval era with a Medieval Feast day: games, costumes, family crests, weaponry, skits, and, of course, food. What a celebration it was!
Four Regents students qualified for the regional competition of the National History Bee: Mason Rasberry, Kelso McEntire, Cate Baker, and Ella Li. It was a great honor for these students to join the competition in Houston on February 17, 2017.
Mason and Kelso each made it to the Championship Round (top 8) of their age divisions. In addition, we are proud to announce that Mason, Kelso, and Ella qualified for the national competition in Atlanta in June.
Great job, young historians!
Congratulations to sixth grader Noah Satir! He placed third out of a field of twelve students from our five-county area last Saturday at the official Scripps Spelling Bee sponsored by the Lufkin Kiwanis Club. Prior to the individual bee, our 4th grade team (Seth Lekas-captain, Ben Satir, Jacob Lekas) and 8th grade team (Liane Muir-captain, Leah Vermillion, Caroline Alders) earned 2nd place trophies after more than four intense hours of spelling words ranging from tutu to charpoy.
Congratulations to all of our class teams! Our students represented Regents Academy well. We are proud of all of you!
Just after Thanksgiving, the 2nd grade class and their teacher, Mrs. Lisa Porter, visited the Appleby Sand Christmas Tree Farm, picked out a beautiful Virginia pine, and brought it back to the school. Decorated with ornaments brought from Regents students’ homes, the tree has added festive sights and smells to the school’s foyer ever since.
As a part of their science studies, the 2nd graders sat down to sketch the tree. Pictured below is the class busily sketching the Regents tree.
The 6th grade class, with their teacher, Lance Vermillion, shared Christmas joy as they traveled from class to class singing and accompanying Christmas carols. Merry Christmas!
What a great job the 5th and 6th grade classes and their drama teacher, Mrs. Ashley Bryant, did in the performance of their class play, “3 Stories.” Bravo!
