DAV School Wins First Place in State at PSIA

HOUSTON: DAV Montessori and Elementary students participated in the Private Schools Interscholastic Association (PSIA) State Meet held on Saturday, May 7 at the Texas Christian University campus in Fort Worth. This event is rooted in virtue and academic excellence and is the culmination of months of hard work and dedication.

Prior to the event, twenty-seven DAV students competed at the District Meet bringing home fifty-two wins! Thirteen students placed First, ten placed Second, eight placed Third, thirteen placed Fourth, seven placed Fifth, and one placed Sixth. The students participated in diverse categories including Math, Spelling, Writing, Dictionary Skills, Storytelling, Maps, Graphs, and Charts, among others. Fourteen students advanced to the State Competition, and won 19 awards in various categories.

Of the winners, three placed First, five placed Second, and one placed Third. This school’s performance is a testament to the rigors and training put forth by the teachers and supported by the parents.
