Last weekend, the Lakeside Middle School Academic Pentathlon team competed at the Regional competition in Garland. The Pentathlon program is designed for seventh- and eighth-grade students. The Pentathlon competition is comprised of five events: math, social studies, science, literature, fine arts, and Super Quiz. The Super Quiz is an oral relay before a large audience in which students work collaboratively on grade-level to answer ten multiple-choice questions. The program is a feeder program into the Decathlon competition.
