Eighth graders took part in their annual Advisory Buzz Competition, lead by math teacher and assistant director of the Middle School Ms. Chall. The event included representatives from each advisory who participated in a mathematical competition in which they counted and buzzed out all numbers containing the numeral seven or a multiple of 7. The winner was Omare Omatete, with second place going to Zoe Woods-Arthur. Each eighth grade advisory was also awarded points for school spirit, as evidenced by wearing their designated advisory colors and supporting each other through positive language. Advisories also win points by avoiding tardies and demerits, decorating their classrooms, and taking on leadership roles throughout the school year. The year-long advisory competition culminates in a day of athletic endeavors in the spring called Advisory Olympics.
