The E (Economics Team) is a school academic team that practices throughout the year after school hours to prepare for a county-wide competition against other schools held in the spring. (At the High school it is called the A-Team.) The competition consists of questions in math, language arts, science, history, and geography. The schools that participate have a 6th, 7th, and 8th grade team that compete against other grade level teams at the spring event. The final scores of each grade level are compiled as a school team to determine the school’s final score. Prizes are awarded to winning school teams at the competition.

The E-Team tryouts are held at the beginning of the year. The team coach chooses only six members from each grade level. If you would like to be part of that team next year, see Mrs. Taylor for more details.
