St. Peter Academy Student Earns Trophy at Scholastic Olympics
James Paton, an eighth-grade student at St. Peter Academy, recently earned a second-place trophy at the 14th annual Scholastic Olympics sponsored by St. Joseph Regional High School in Montvale. Paton was a member of
the St. Peter Academy team, and earned his trophy in the science competition.
More than 300 eighth graders representing 22 schools from New Jersey and New York participated in the Scholastic Olympics. In addition to science, students demonstrated their ability to think critically and their
knowledge in English, math, religion, social studies, art, and spelling. A "Superquiz," which tested students on all subjects, was also held.
“We are all very proud of the entire St. Peter Academy team for representing the school so well during the Scholastic Olympics,” said Larissa Owsik, the St. Peter Academy eighth-grade teacher who served as a chaperone for the event.
