(more pictures available)
Ryan Flake, an eighth-grade student at Spanish Fork Jr. High, won the school-level competition of the National Geographic Bee on December 15, 2017, and a chance at a $50,000 college scholarship. The school-level Bee, at which students answered oral questions on geography, was the first round in the 30th annual National Geographic Bee. In order to participate in the Bee, eighth graders had to pass a written test with a high qualifying score. There were only 30 seats available for the entire eighth grade so being able to participate is an accomplishment in and of itself. The following students qualified and participated in the school competition:
Connor Gates, Laycee Bills, Carter Cook, Emmie Olson, McKay Shaffer, Gwen Beagley, Sydney Chipman, Jones Lewis, Questin Francis, Brian Gunyan, Wyatt Hughes-Millman, Brenner Shepherd, Natalie Olsen, Zac Dart, Samuel Clements, Ellie Maughan, Trevor Stephens, Kate Jones, Xander Lacefield, Kelsey Mansfield, Cole Gwilliam, Andrew Porter, Ryan Flake, Ashton Szalkowski, and Kade Baum
Ryan Flake finished the competition in First Place with Wyatt Hughes-Millman finishing in Second Place and Sydney Chipman finishing in Third Place. Congratulations to our school finalists!
School winners around the country, including Ryan, will now take a written test to be eligible to compete in the state Geographic Bee on April 6, 2018. State winners will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington D.C. to participate in the National Geographic Bee and a chance for a $50,000 scholarship.

For our 1-29-18 reading assembly, we are going to see just how well Mrs. Hill and Mrs. Brown know their favorite books! Or ... do our students know the book(s) better?
- Kindergarten through 2nd grade(s) are going to go up against Mrs. Hill
- 3rd through 6th grade(s) are going up against Mrs. Brown
Mrs. Hill has picked the book They All Saw A Cat by Brendan Wenzel, and Mrs. Brown had chosen Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone. Happy reading ... Let's see if we can stump Mrs. Brown and Mrs. HIll!
