Recently the 5th through 8th grade students tested their knowledge in geography and spelling in two different bees. The Geography Bee is sponsored by the National Geographic Society, and the Spelling Bee is sponsored by Scripps National Spelling Bee. There were three parts to each bee: a written round, oral round, and a school round. The winner of the Geography Bee, Rachel S., went on to take an online test to qualify for the national competition. Six people are going on to the Local Spelling Bee on February 9: Gracie, Elizabeth D., Rachel S., Lexi, Luke, and Peter.
