Way to Go Quiz Bowl Team!

Fifth-graders from the six MCPASD elementary schools definitely have their thinking caps on.

District teams from all six schools participated in Wisconsin's Thinking Cap Quiz Bowl competition, which took place on Nov. 15. Students competed online with other teams from around the state. The contest included 100 multiple choice questions in categories including history, spelling, math, science, English, current events, children's literature, government, sports, geography and more.

Each team was given two tries on each question, with speed and accuracy on the first attempt building the highest score. Team members were chosen based on the results of a screener given to all interested fifth graders. The screener had question topics similar to those covered on the actual statewide quiz bowl.

CONGRATULATIONS to the West Middleton Quiz Bowl team, which earned first place in the state!
