On Saturday, February 24th Brentwood hosted the PSIA Academic Meet. Kay Taylor, along with an amazing group of volunteers, did a fantastic job getting the campus ready and making sure everything ran smoothly. Our elementary and middle school students have been practicing and studying for this all school year, and they did wonderfully! 50% ranked in the top 6! We have a team of 17 who made State! That is over 25% of our District team including both elementary and middle school! One scored a perfect score on her test; a fourth grader made State in all four of his events, including 3 first place rankings; and a sixth grader topped 1st or 2nd in three events for State qualification! Here are the PSIA District results for our Bears:
