Wow! TJ students rocked the semi-final round of the National Geographic Geography Bee once again! It’s true! Not one, not two, but eight fourth and fifth graders made it through seven rounds in the classroom without missing a single question!
Congratulations to fifth graders Jack Ackerman, Nils Andersson, and Ketevan Gallagher, and fourth graders Grace Kummer, Lucy Hladky, Charlie Alexander, Eli Vennebush, and Jonathan Katen for achieving this impressive feat!
After dodging all of the illness running rampant through TJ, we were finally able to hold our Final Round of the National Geographic Geography Bee this past week. The finalists spent close to an hour answering questions in my room on Monday afternoon. In the end, it was Eli Vennebush who came out on top and was named the TJ School Champion. He’ll take a test next week to see how he fares compared to the other school champs throughout the state of Virginia!
