San Jose Hosts the National Geography Bee
Thirty-four students competed on Friday, November 30th in a school-wide geography bee that is sponsored by National Geographic. To compete in the bee, each student had to take a preliminary test and earn a top spot in his or her grade. The winners this year include Sean M.(1st place), Michael S.(2nd place), and Blaine P.(3rd place). Sean M. will take a test to qualify for the state competition. Congratulations to all the participants on a great performance, and best of luck to Sean as he continues in the process.
