 Making the San Jacinto D-I-F-F-E-R-E-N-C-E

 

  

 

On Wednesday, February 28, the Riverside County Office of Education hosted the

41st Annual Riverside County Bee at the Moreno Valley Conference Center. 

The competition began with twenty-eight participants from across Riverside County. 

 

After 21 rounds of intense competition, the Bee was down to the final four.  Among the final four competitors was Hope Edwards, a sixth grader from San Jacinto Leadership Academy.  Hope successfully spelled “dilemma” to bring home the fourth place trophy. 

 

In her autobiography, Hope said her ultimate goal is to compete at the Scripps National Spelling Bee someday.  With her incredible performance this year, she is well on her way to achieving her goal.  

 

Please join us in congratulating Hope!

SJUSD History Day 2018 Results

 

Every year National History Day® frames students’ research within a historical theme. The theme is chosen for the broad application to world, national, or state history and its relevance to ancient history or to the more recent past. This year’s theme was Conflict and Compromise in History. The intentional selection of the theme for National History Day is to provide an opportunity for students to push past the antiquated view of history as mere facts and dates and drill down into historical content to develop perspective and understanding. 

 
Our students in San Jacinto Unified School District did an outstanding job in presenting their projects in one of the five categories relating to the theme of Conflict and Compromise.
