The Language Arts team participates in the MSAC academic team league. They have three meets a year. Each school sends 12 members to the event where they are given two hours to use their teamwork skills, writing skills and creativity to produce their quality writing. These may include a position paper, a fictionalized journal, etc. Each team may submit at least two, but no more than four entries, which are then judged and scored by league coaches. Students in grades 9-12 are eligible to participate.
