On January 26, 2019, Chapel graduate Christina Arguello took 1st place for Humorous Interpretation at her qualifying tournament at Narbonne High School , which earned her an invitation to UC Berkeley. At UC Berkeley, she competed against hundreds of high school students from all over California and other states. She made it up to the semi-finals as a freshman. This was her first time competing at the state level. She’s working to qualify next for the Wisconsin Invitational. Let's keep her in our prayers.
This year's math competition was one of the best ever. In the 3rd to 5th grade division, Aden Lee (4th) took 1st place; Isabella Diaz (4th) placed second, and Noah Ha (3rd) placed 3rd. In the junior high competition, Andrew Lee (8th) earned the 1st place trophy; Michael Kim (6th) took 2nd, and Skye Connors (8th) placed 3rd. One teacher was heard saying, "It's amazing what these students can do! I don't even understand some of the questions-let alone understand how to solve the equations." Good job, Mr. del Pozo and Mr. Pham, and Congratulations Students!!
