UIL Academics Heading to State!

We had a proper send off to our three UIL teams—Calculator Apps, Mathematics, and Number Sense. Our two-time state Calculator Apps team is seeking a 3-Peat. It was a sight to see all of our students supporting our UIL teams!

Our State Qualifiers are as follows:

Our Calculator Apps team is comprised of Kirstee Dunlap, Joshua Davis, Ethan Ho, and Alexi Alsobrook.  Our Number Sense team has Jesus Martinez, Hudson Sisk, Jason Fleischer, and Neil Huskey in its ranks.  Alexi Alsobrook, Joshua Davis, Kirstee Dunlap and Lucas Boyd make up our Mathematics team.

Thank you to Ms. Amy Thiede for coaching our academic athletes!  Go Pettus Eagles!
