Monthly Letter to Parents
With the end of the year fast approaching, I want to inform you of some activities that have taken place at 1-R and will be happening in the future.
Quiz Bowl had another successful year. The 1-R teams finished as champions and runners-up at the district-wide competition at St. Libory. Team 1 defeated St. Libory to win the competition. Members were Dalton Quandt, Ross Otto, Aryanna Warner, Zoe Stokely, Grady Griess and Blake Byerly. Runners-up on Team 2 were Caleb Jacobsen, JoAnne Ward, Jacque Johnson, McKenna Watson, Landon Zentz and Brennan Semm. In addition, Caleb Jacobsen and Dalton Quandt represented 1-R on the Northwest Middle School Quiz Bowl competition in Kearney on March 11. We congratulate Mrs. Eirick and both of our teams on an outstanding season!
Math Counts was held in Kearney on February 14. 1-R had the following students participate: Ryan Zimmerman, Caleb Jacobsen, JoAnne Ward, Merriah Bockmann, Dalton Quandt, Caitlyn Shafer, Blake Byerly, Grady Griess, Colin Quandt and Landon Zentz. 1-R finished in 10th place out of 23 teams. Congratulations to Mrs. Byerly and these exemplary representatives of 1-R school!
