National Geographic Bee Coming to Rheem!

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!
