National Geographic Bee

Calling all 4th & 5th Graders!!

The National Geographic Bee is going to be held at Walnut Grove for the very first time!  We are also the first elementary school in our district to host this fabulous competition.

This annual event is designed to inspire and reward students' curiosity about the world around us, to learn more about maps, places and landscapes, its people and cultures, flora and fauna,  and history and economies. National Geographic provides resources to prepare for the Bee by clicking here . Sample questions and further information will be emailed to all registered students.

The Geographic Bee will take place on Tuesday, January 30, 2018 at 4:00pm and is open to all 4th and 5th grade students. Our school champion has the opportunity to take the online qualifying test be considered for advancement to the state Bee.

To register, please follow this link and submit the form by Friday, January 19, 2018.  This event is sponsored by the PTA and is free for all students. 

We are also in need of some volunteers to help with this event.  If you would like to help out, please contact Deepta Rao at raodeepta@gmail.com.
