What in the World?!

How can that be?!  Is it true?  Does TJ really have 17 students advancing to the school semi-final round of the National Geographic Geography Bee?

You read that correctly!  We had seventeen fourth and fifth graders go through seven rounds of questions in the classroom without missing a single question!  When we return to school in January those kids will join me for yet another round of competition and the field will be narrowed down to a group of ten finalists in preparation for the school finals.

Congratulations to fifth graders Samuel Salin, Ruben Rodriguez, Javier Gonzalez-Messmer, Joshua Stillwagoner, Liam Timar-Wilcox, Nicholas Parente, Amalia Alexander, Will Atkeson, Nico Braverman, Maddie Deering, Maeve Dodge, and Pato Whitaker, and fourth graders Isabel Costa, Jia Park, Halen Leavitt, Alexis Niemi, and Alex Perez!
