Attention Hickory Ridge Brainiacs!!   

    If you have a STRONG command of your academic subjects, a passion for popular culture, and a love for trivial pursuit...PLEASE put your smarty pants on and join the Hickory Ridge National Academic Quiz Bowl Team.  Your coaches this year are Ms. Raines in 8th grade and Ms. Valentine in 7th.   Quiz Bowl is open to all grade levels.  Please be aware that Quiz Bowl is a once a week after-school commitment, and we will compete against other schools in at least two Saturday tournaments beginning in January.  You must provide your own transportation for these events.   Please contact Mrs. Raines by email if you have any questions.


    Weekly Meetings:  Mondays 4:00 to 6:00 pm


    Attention Quiz Bowl Members:


     Dear Quiz Bowl Team and Parents --
    For the REGIONAL TOURNAMENT on Saturday, March 3rd --   
    Our site has been changed to THOMAS JEFFERSON CLASSICAL ACADEMY
    Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy
    2527 Highway 221A

    1) We must check in at 9 am.  Please bring a bagged lunch, water, and snacks, as we will be there all day.  I will be giving out the official schedule for the matches at practice this week.
    2)Practice this week -- in addition to Monday, we need to do a longer practice Thursday. (8th graders I know we have rising 9th graders Parent meeting at the high school Thurs at 6, so we would need to be done by 5:45)
    AND -----Don't let our performance last week get you down, because both of those teams went to STATE last year.  They practice daily, and they LIVE it.  So we may need to think about this as we look towards next year...
    Thanks guys -- Ms. Raines and Ms. Valentine
