Ryan Flake has recently been notified by the National Geographic Society that he is one of the semifinalists eligible to compete in the state level competition of the 2018 National Geographic State Bee. The contest will be held at Jordan Commons Megaplex in Sandy on Friday, April 6, 2018.

This is the second level of the National Geographic Bee competition, which is now in its 30th year. School Bees were held in schools with 4th through 8th grade students throughout the state to determine each school champion. School champions then took a qualifying test, which they submitted to the National Geographic Society. Ryan’s test results qualified him to be among the 100 top-scoring students within our state to compete in the State Bee.

If Ryan wins the state level competition, he will receive $200, the National Geographic Concise Atlas of the World, 4th Edition and a trip to Washington, D.C., to represent our state in the National Geographic Bee Championship to be held at National Geographic Society headquarters, May 20-23, 2018.  He would then have a chance to compete for a $50,000 college scholarship.  Best wishes and good luck to our school champion, Ryan Flake, in our state National Geographic Bee competition!

K-9 Visit

As part of the DARE program, K9 officers visited with fifth grade students. Below is a list of what students said they learned.

The dogs bite really hard.

I learned that you should never do anything that's wrong. You will never now the price that you will have to pay.

I learned that K-9 dogs are very strong, fierce, and have very sharp teeth. They're also really obedient to commands that the officers gave them. They have an amazing sense of smell.

Don't do drugs; no matter what. You want to get into a mess with those kinds of dogs?

It was interesting that when the dogs would bite, they would stay in one place.

You should never run or hide from a police dog. Ouch!!

The dogs are very smart and strong!

A dog's bite can hurt really bad. Even though he had a suit on, he got puncture marks on his arms.

One of the many student jobs available for students to apply for is the role of a student mentor. This job is reserved for students in upper grades, and allows them a chance to mentor a student in a younger grade. The mentors help students catch up on homework or get extra reading practice, all while building new friendships.
