Kudos to QA Students
KUDOS to QA Students!
Despite the pandemic, Queen of Angels students continue to be “empowered” through the many program offerings made available both during and after school. Though we have not had the ability to gather formally, thanks to the dedication of our students, faculty, and parent volunteers, our reputation for academic success has not wavered. At a recent awards assembly, the QA Community was finally able to gather and celebrate the many accomplishments of our students during the 2021-2022 school year.
The assembly began with 14 students being inducted into the National Junior Honor Society, a prestigious honor bestowed on students who have demonstrated scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. This was followed by a host of middle school students who were recognized on the Honor Roll, which included First Honors, Second Honors, and the Principal’s List.
At an archdiocesan level, two students received awards from the MLK Essay and Poster Contest, with one of the honorees recognized for her essay, and the other being named Chancery Choice for her poster. School finalists and archdiocesan representatives for both the Religion and Spelling Bees were honored for their placement in the archdiocese.
Most impressive were the Catholic Schools Weeks Essays with winners being presented certificates. A testament to the foundation of their Catholic education, students were asked to read their essays on the morning show during the 3rd quarter.
The STREAM awards included the remarkable accomplishments of the First Lego Robotics Team, which placed 2nd overall in the regional competition. The Future Cities team won two of the seven overall awards. The Best Circular Economy Award was given to their model, which represented this year's design theme and concept, and the Best Future City Model in the state of Georgia.
The Odyssey of the Mind teams continues to be a source of empowerment for our students, teaching them how to develop and use their natural creativity to become problem-solvers, focusing on teamwork, budgeting, time management, and public speaking. Five teams represented Queen of Angels in the state and regional competition, with two qualifying for the World Competition in IOWA this May.
We are so proud of the hard work of each student and the pride associated with representing Queen of Angels! We celebrate and congratulate each of our students and look forward to finishing out the 2021-2022 school year strong with more traditions and celebrations! It is great to be at QA!
