These students participated in their Region Band Concert this Saturday and did a fantastic job! In order to make it, they participated in a contest mid December and competed against all other Junior high students in Region 13. Over 70 students competed in each different section and these students prevailed. Sam, Isaac, Andrew, and Juliana were the top in each of their sections, securing 1st chair in the top band. Abigail and Gabriel took 1st chair in their sections in the Concert Band. Please congratulate these students on a job well done!
Palacios Chess is a club that meets at Palacios Junior High after school on Tuesdays. We are open to and welcome all levels of play from never seen the game to seasoned competitors. Last school year teams from Palacios Chess competed in the UIL Chess Competition at the JH level and took home 4th place in the winter. In the spring we attended a Chess tournament in Rockport TX and our high school and junior high students brought home trophies and medals. A new season is starting up right now – join us as we learn to play and compete in the game of kings. Please contact Chess Coach James Post @ firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
