Catholic Schools Week, the annual national celebration of the role Catholic elementary and secondary schools across the country play in providing a values-added education for America's young people, will be celebrated at Overbrook School with a different theme each day. Monday, the day of service, centered on honoring police officers who keep the school safe. While Friday students will celebrate the head of the Catholic church, Pope Francis.
Five Overbrook sixth-graders were selected to advance to the next level of the Veterans of Foreign Wars essay contest in which students wrote about our country's veterans. Overbrook students took top honors and third place.
A team of Overbrook junior high girls won first place in the Math is 4 Girls contests hosted by St. Cecilia Academy. The event was an opportunity for girls who enjoy and excel in math to participate in a day of hands-on activities and competition in the field of mathematics. Ninety girls from 13 area middle schools, grades 6-8, participated.
Seventy-four percent of the seventh-graders who tested last year Overbrook School met required scores in selected subject areas on their standardized/achievement test to qualify to participate in the Duke University Talent Identification Program for 2014. That means those students will be able to take the SAT or ACT college entrance exams as seventh-graders.
