Calling all 4th and 5th graders! Rheem’s Annual National Geographic Bee will take place this winter. All 4th and 5th grade students are invited to participate. This is a fun and exciting way to learn more about geography!
There will be two school competitions. The Preliminary Competition will take the form of a written test all about geography. The top scorers will move on to the Final Competition where a School Champion will be chosen.
All 4th and 5th graders are encouraged to take the Preliminary Written Test as follows:
4th graders – During lunch recess on Wednesday, Nov. 30 in Room 2 (Ms. McMullen’s classroom)
5th graders – During lunch recess on Thursday, Dec. 1st in Room 19 (Mr. Greer’s classroom)
Note: Students may take the test on either day – whatever suits their own schedules best (for example, a 5th grader can take the test on Wednesday if he/she has an obligation on Thursday)
Finalists will be announced by Monday, December 5, so there will be plenty of time to study before the School-Wide Final Competition on Thursday, January 12 at 9:00 a.m. in the Multi-Use Room.
All students who participate in the preliminary competition will have their names included in a drawing to win a fun “Where in the World?” geography game (a $30 value!), so everyone who tries out has a chance to be a winner!
