The Academic Super Bowl team will meet on Jan. 18 at 4:30 p.m. via Zoom. At the meeting, the team plans to discuss the upcoming competition and go over individual subject team content.

According to James Ziegler, Academic Super Bowl sponsor and social studies teacher, the team will conduct its meetings over Zoom indefinitely.

Ziegler said, “Right now, with the rising COVID-19 numbers, it just doesn’t make sense to have 20 kids in a crowded classroom. All upcoming meetings will be virtual for the foreseeable future.”

Additionally, the Academic Super Bowl team will attend the area competition on April 20.

Ayaan Abbasi, Academic Super Bowl fine arts subject team captain and junior, said that the team is ready for the competition season to start.

Abbasi said via email, “I’m very proud to be a part of the Academic Super Bowl team and am excited for the season ahead.”
