GPISD Hosts Middle School Pentathlon

Houston, Texas: Students from Cunningham, Galena Park, North Shore, and Woodland Acres Middle Schools competed in the district's Pentathlon recently. This year's theme was India, and the students spent much of the school year studying all different types of information over the topic. Tests were taken in English/Language Arts, science, math, social studies and fine arts. The students also competed in a separate event, the Super Quiz, where North Shore's 7th grade and Galena Park's 8th grade teams walked away victorious. North Shore Middle School took home the overall team trophy while earning the Individual Division Champion Award for each of the three divisions for both grade grade levels. The event was a success, and the students and coaches are already looking forward to starting the study on next year's theme.
