Last month, I wrote about the outstanding success of our junior high students at the UIL academic meet. This month, I can continue the good news about the Poth students from elementary to high school.

Poth Elementary was the host to the District UIL meet. Melissa Poth, fourth-grade teacher, organized the meet. She does a terrific job at coordinating and motivating the entire staff and student body to participate in UIL Academics. Poth Elementary kept the first-place award at home as their students earned many awards, including:

Second grade -- Hunter Dziuk, fifth place, creative writing; and Trinity Hoover, fourth, storytelling.

High school

Under the direction of Lisa Theuret, English-language arts teacher at Poth High School, and the entire high school staff, Poth High hosted its Poth Invitational Academic and Speech Meet. Fourteen schools were represented at the two-day meet that is a warmup for the district meet later this spring. Poth High School took first place in the academic meet.
