First U.I.L. Tournament @ MC WilliamsThe first U.I.L. Tournament of the 2011-12 school year was held at MC Williams Middle School on Saturday, October 22, 2011. Burbank students were on their way very early in the morning, ready for a day filled with challenges and fun. Many teachers were present too, lending their support and encouragement to the team. Some teachers like Ms. Jobson, Ms. Holub, Ms. Onia, and Mr. Bejko served as proctors and graders. Others like Ms. Stewart and Ms. Mayberry stayed with their students for either the morning or the afternoon part of the day. Ms. Showalter and Mr. Smith stayed all day, monitoring the activities, making sure that the students knew what their competition was and where. Ms. Rosa was also on hand, making sure our students had water, juice, and a well-deserved scrumptuous pizza for lunch!The day was long and the competition fierce, but even so, our team was victorious in several areas.Congratulations to our winners!Josue Cardenas- Listening 6Vanessa Trejo- Dictionary Skills 7/8David Jasso- Social Studies 7/8April Morales and Andrew Koltko- Modern Oratory 7/8Shay Arratia- Calculator Skills 7/8 and Math 7/8Andrew Koltko, Sandra Garza, and Osman Quintero- Listening 7/8Andrew Koltko- Spelling 7/8, Math 7/8AND THIS WAS OUR TEAM!Many thanks to all the coaches who were not able to make it on Saturday but who helped us prepare and were with us in spirit.
