SSISD Places Second in Elementary Academic UIL Competiton

SSISD’s 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students participated in an Elementary Academic UIL competition on Saturday, March 24th, 2018.  The contest was hosted at Pine Tree Middle School in Longview, TX.  Our team was represented by 120 students, 33 coaches, and our five campus coordinators.  Our students competed in 27 events ranging from number sense to storytelling. Our SSISD team earned second place standing overall. This is SSISD’s third year in recent history to participate in elementary UIL.  Last year, the SSISD team finished first in the meet, but this year, they were very narrowly defeated by Hallsville.

Administrators believe the Academic UIL competition in the lower grades will provide a catalyst to more invovement of students in the high school UIL program.
