Knowledge Bowl is kind of like a team Jeopardy competition. A school’s Knowledge Bowl team is made up of a total of 3 or more smaller teams, each consisting of 4 – 6 team members. Our school’s teams compete against other teams from neighboring schools to see who can answer the most trivia questions in math, science, history, English, and social studies. During each competition, teams compete in a written round (45 multiple-choice questions) and two oral rounds (45 questions each). The winning team is based on the total number of questions answered correctly in all three rounds.
Practices begin on February 2 so please be sure to return the required paperwork to the main office by that date.
Applications are now available for the annual Skyridge Variety Show. Applications are available in the main office and are due back by January 27. Tryouts will be on January 28 at 3:00 PM. The big SHOW will be Friday, February 13.
Skyridge is proud to be introducing its very own Robotics Club. This will be a hands on club that teaches problem solving while creatively thinking outside the box. Students will learn the system in the club – so no experience is necessary. Robotics Club is open to all students – but with priority given to 6th and 7th grade to learn the system and build our competition team for next fall. Students interested in Robotics Club should go see Ms. Swezea in room 201 to learn more information and pick up an application. All applications must be in Friday, January 16th to be considered for the club. The club will begin on Wednesday, January 28th. The club will meet on Wednesdays in room 201 from 2:45 – 4:00
