Santiago Elementary Students Mikaela Allison, Viviana Velasco, Matthew Batres, and Diego Gonzalez made SAUSD proud when they traveled to Sacramento to compete in the National History Day State competition at William Jessup University. After delivering their performance in the morning, they learned a few hours later that they had made it to the finals. Although they did not win, they placed in the top nine intermediate school performances in the state! This is an amazing accomplishment especially since this is the first year for the team competing. “As they near their promotion, we wish them all the best in their futures and thank them for their great contributions, hard work, and dedication, proving that Santiago (K-8) is a great place to be!” said Erik Peterson, Santiago Teacher.
