On Saturday, December 7th, the Nysmith History Bowl teams competed in their first tournament of the year at Thomas Jefferson High School. For many members, this was their first time competing in a history competition as a team. We are thrilled to announce that our Nysmith B team won their first ever match! The Nysmith A team improved upon their performance from last year on their way to the best ever finish for a Nysmith History Bowl team in a regional competition. They went 4-1 before being defeated by only one question in the semifinals! We have more bowl competitions later on in the year and hope to add a Nysmith C team for the next tournament in February. #WhyNysmith ... See MoreSee Less

They learned about the Ring of Fire and famous active volcanoes around the world. They ended this exciting unit by building their own volcano, deciding what type they built, and erupting them for the class. #WhyNysmith ... See MoreSee Less
