Latin State Convention Results

Latini and Latinae (aka Latin students) made the trek to Austin over the weekend for the TSJCL (Texas State Junior Classical League) Convention. All 9 students contributed to our sweepstakes total.

Here are the highlights:

Andrew Tao 2nd place in Reading Comprehension

Sara Rufael 2nd place in Sight Recitation

Morgan Batiste-Simms 4th in Dramatic Interpretation

Abuzar Noorali – 4th in Mixed Media art

Brittny Efendy, Andrew Tao, & Tommy Zhang earned Summa cum Laude in Pentathlon (top 10%)

Sara Rufael & Morgan Batiste-Simms earned Maxima cum Laude (top 20%)

Varsha Mullangi earned Magna cum Laude (top 30%)

Connie Yan, Abuzar Noorali, & Ryan Wey  earned Cum Laude (top 40%).

The pentathlon is a good measure of a student’s everyday progress and achievement. Only half of all the students who attend receive a certificate for pentathlon; all of ours did.

Student Council Outstanding Recognition Awards

Ms. Drake and Ms. Nguyen took thirteen students, the outgoing and incoming Student Council Executive Board members, to Arlington this past Saturday-Tuesday for the 78th Annual TASC State Convention. Our kids met up with over 4,800 Texas high school student council leaders as they celebrated accomplishments, elected state officers, and attended sessions on leadership and student council issues. This was the largest gathering of student council leaders in the country and it was designed to motivate, educate, and celebrate Texas student council leaders

Our Clements Student Council was awarded a few of the TASC (Texas Association of Student Councils) “outstanding recognition awards,” including: Drugs, Alcohol, Safety & Health; Energy & Environment; Pride & Patriotism; and Community Service, which resulted in our council achieving sweepstakes. Clements Student Council would not have earned these distinctions without the support of our administration, staff, students, as well as all of the other clubs/organizations at Clements.

Ms. Drake and Ms. Nguyen are incredibly proud of our council and all of their hard work this past year, and they look forward to seeing what else our council has in store for our school and our community.
