BCISD elementary students excel in UIL contests

Bay City ISD elementary students wrapped up UIL competitions at the end of January, bringing home 31 medals and ribbons.

Students from all three BCISD elementary schools competed in writing, speaking and academic events. Students competed in the writing events at their home campuses, and traveled to West Columbia on January 18th for academic events and to Sweeny on January 25th for speaking events.

The BCISD elementary campuses saw 108 students participate, and 32 staff members serve as volunteer coaches.

BCISD Elementary UIL Coordinator is Jackie Gorman, who also serves as the Elementary GT program teacher.
