School Board Appreciation Month
BATTLE OF THE BOOKS CHAMPIONS!
On Friday, January 20th the 6th Annual "Battle of the Books" competition was held at Southwest Early College High School and I am extremely happy to announce that Austin Middle School was awarded 1st place. Last year these same students competed and they came in fourth place. However, with hard work and dedication these students were able to come out at the top this year and beat out all the rest of the middle schools. I would like to give them a great shout out for a great job done in representing our school. After the tournament, all participants were taken to Olive Garden for lunch.(Pictured L to R: Melinda Diaz, Attorney (Moderator), Nora Galvan, Library Coordinator, Alejandra Reyes, Alexandre Maldonado, Fernanda Reyes, Cassandra Rios, Ms. Rodriguez -Librarian and Jesse Vela-School Board Member.
