I would like to congratulate the Westside Section for your recent coverage of the Palisades High School academic decathlon team ("Ready, Set, Think!" March 10). These dedicated students and their outstanding teacher/coaches deserve to be recognized by the larger community. Their success in winning the city competition and their second-place finish in the state competition are a tribute to the outstanding educational program at Palisades.
I hope you will continue to inform your readers of the many outstanding achievements students obtain every day in our Westside public schools.
