7th Grade Jeopardy Competition

On Saturday, April 29, the seventh graders participated in the annual Jeopardy Academic Games of Queen of Peace High School in North Arlington, NJ. The students studied very hard and were well-prepared for the competition.

The questions asked ranged in categories such as Science, World Capitals, Slogans, and Math. Every round was full of nail-biting tension as the competition was fierce.

Five SFA teams out of a total of eighteen teams placed in the contest. The seventh graders would like to thank Ms. Savage and Ms. Farinola for believing in us and preparing us for Jeopardy. It was a memorable day for the seventh grade!
