The Hopatcong Education Association sponsored Durban Avenue School’s first annual school-wide “Academic Bowl” on Friday, June 14.

Fifth graders battled first, followed by the 4th graders later that afternoon. The purpose of the Academic Bowl is to provide the opportunity for students to take what they learn in the classroom and compete in a fast-paced academic quiz format, to promote a spirit of academic competition and good sportsmanship, and to encourage critical thinking skills amongst our students. As part of the PRIDE grant, parents, members of the community, and administration were invited to cheer on contestants as they answered an array of questions from the students current curriculum in Math, Language Arts, Science and Social Studies. The students and staff collaborated to create all questions used during the academic bowl. Buzzers in hand, each grade answered more than 70 questions.
