This is the eleventh time that a student from Suffield Middle School has received the highest score in the state of Connecticut for the Middle School Scholastic Achievement Challenge.  And this year we had winners in both of the two grades tested.

More than 12,500 students from the sixth and eighth grades statewide participated in the challenge. This consisted of an hour-long examination with questions in the disciplines of math, science, language, history and geography.

Our eighth grader, Wyatt Cashman, and our sixth grader, Bethany Richardson-White, bested all of their competitors in the state. The state winners’ prize is a trophy, school winners are given a medallion, and students who score above the national average receive a Certificate of Merit. Wyatt and Bethany  received their trophys in front of their peers in early June. Suffield students who scored above the national average were to receive their certificates on the last day of school. Many thanks for a PTAC grant that helped make the Challenge possible. Congratulations!
