Academic Decathlon

 

            Clovis East holds many opportunities for students to become involved and thrive in something which they will succeed.  One such opportunity is Academic Decathlon, or more often referred to as AcaDec.  This school year, our AcaDec students are working hard to prepare for a competition where the theme is New Alternatives in Energy: Ingenuity and Innovation.  They meet every week with their advisors to be trained on the theme and to practice the different events which take place at the competition.  The AcaDec team must prepare for a multiple choice test, a planned and an impromptu speech, an interview, writing of an expository essay, and last competing in a Super Quiz Relay which all have to do with the theme within seven different academic areas.  Students at Clovis East work hard to prepare for this competition which takes place the last week on January and first weekend in February.  Academic Decathlon is just one of many exciting things going on at Clovis East High School.
