Welcome to our Academic Derby Team Home Page!

Academic Derby is a Trivia Challenge Team.  It is made up of 5 members who have a passion for studying general knowledge and a talent for memorizing facts.  It is a televised competition, that consists of three rounds of questions.  U.S. History, Geography, Literature, Spelling, Science, Sports, and Grammar are the major question categories.  Students interested in Academic Derby must be comfortable in front of a camera, quick to buzz in and willing to study/prepare for matches.  In addition, team members must be able to attend before-school practices.  Our team practices on Tuesday mornings, from 7:30 AM - 8:30 AM, during the season.  This is a county-wide competition open to all 5th grade students.  The team will be selected based on teacher referral and a general knowledge oral quiz.  All team members will receive a team shirt and our final match will be celebrated at a restaurant of our choice!  Our team is coached by 5th grade teacher, Ms. Stephanie Humphrey & 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Christy Spain.
