Maryvale High School
(Announcements will be read over the PA DAILY)
MARYVALE IS A CLOSED CAMPUS. No student may leave campus until the end of the school day.
JROTC: This past weekend, Maryvale's JROTC competed in the Phoenix Union Junior Varsity Marauder competition held at Betty Fairfax High School. The team placed first and second in all five events and won first place overall. Team members include Iran Padilla, Ryan Gillette, Stephen Deason, Sherlinn Rodriguez, Johnny Cifuentes and Bryan Rios.
Congratulations to Maryvale’s Academic Decathlon team.
This weekend they competed in the district competition and captured second place in the super quiz competition. The team was led in scoring by Luis Camacho, who earned a bronze medal in speech, a silver medal in language in literature, a silver medal in social science, a gold medal in essay, and a gold medal in science. Of the 338 students, Luis was the second highest scorer. He is now the highest scoring student in Maryvale’s history (at least as far as the records go back), which is about 25 years. Aiyana Navarrette won a bronze medal in essay in the scholastic division. Alondra Landaverde, Jennifer Mejia Vasquez, Maria Martinez, Fabiola Santos Hernandez, Isaak Vargas, Vivian Nguyen, and Darinka Hernandez all contributed to the team’s success.
