Silsbee Independent School District Board of Trustees honored the Silsbee Middle School UIL and the Silsbee Elementary Robotics Team on April 10 at the Silsbee High School auditorium.
The mid-February results of the District UIL Meet are in and Silsbee students shined at the Bridge City Middle School District 22 AAAA UIL.
Sue Penry, Silsbee’s EJMSMS UIL Coordinator, said that despite a tough start, Silsbee students competed well.
“We are very proud of the students' achievements in UIL this year, especially considering the challenges this school year brought: Hurricane Harvey, the ice/snow delays, the flu,”she said. “Our students have shown they can set and reach goals.”
She expects that these students will see continued success in high school, competing at the State Academic UIL Meet.
