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.

Third grade -- Jordan Lyssy and Levi Wiatrek, second, and Jeralyn Wiatrek, fourth, music memory; Jeralyn Wiatrek, second, ready writing; Cooper Conn, first, Jordan Lyssy, second, and Abbagaille Herber, sixth, spelling; and Jeralyn Wiatrek, third, storytelling.

Fourth grade -- Faith Canales, second, Catherine Henke, third, Kyrah Luna, fourth, art smart; Miles Korzekwa, Trace Harris, and Faith Canales, all tied for first, Laney Gorzell, third, Aaron Antuna, fifth, music memory.

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.

Here is a complete list of Poth winners:

Seth Dunn, first, Kelli Kolodziej, third, number sense; Kayleigh Wauters, fourth, calculator applications; Clay Rotter, first, Kenya Barrientos, second, Jake Sekula, fourth, and Rosa Rosales, fifth, current events.

Cody Soto, third, news writing; Claire Raabe, sixth, ready writing; Heather Meyer, second, Molly Jarzombek, fifth, editorial writing; Heather Meyer, first, Clay Rotter, third, Spencer Flieller, sixth, headline writing; Kayleigh Wauters, first, and Drew Dylla and Heather Rocha, tied, fifth, accounting; Jessica Dzuik, first, Heather Meyer, second, Karla Gomez, fourth, and Jared Golub, fifth, spelling; Kenya Barrientos, first, Whitney Lynch, second, Craig Kilgore, third, and Claire Raabe, fourth, literary criticism.
