Four St. Mark's Students Advance to State

72 St. Mark's Students participated in the Private School Interscholastic Association (PSIA) competition last weekend. The PSIA competition features 19 contest categories covering a wide range of disciplines, therefore providing an exciting opportunity for private school students in grades 1 through 8 to engage in academic competition with their peers throughout the state of Texas.

Congratulations to the four St. Mark's students who are advancing to the PSIA State Meet. In order to qualify for the state meet, students must place first or second in their competition. 6th Grader Dalia received first place in 6th Grade Onsite Drawing and second place in 6th Grade Spelling. Her fellow 6th grader, Caitlin, received second place in 6th Grade Onsite Drawing. Lani received first place in 5th Grade Prose Interpretation and 3rd grader Monique received second place in 3rd Grade Spelling. These four St. Mark's Lions will compete at the PSIA State Meet at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth on Saturday, April 27th, 2013.
