EXPLORER'S CLUB NEWSLETTERS

Timothy Georgie, son of Ed and Cindy Georgie of Elsberry, has been notified by the National Geographic Society that he is one of the semifinalists eligible to compete in the 2017 Missouri National Geographic State Bee. The contest will be held at the University of Missouri-Columbia on Friday, March 31, 2017.  Timothy is a seventh grader at Elsberry Middle School.  He won the local Geography Bee at Elsberry and then qualified for the State competition based on his high performance on the National Geographic Bee written test.

This is the second level of the National Geographic Bee competition, which is now in its 29th year. School Bees were held in schools with fourth- through eighth-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. The National Geographic Society has invited up to 100 of the top-scoring students in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Department of Defense Dependents Schools and U.S. territories to compete in the State Bees.

Each state champion will receive $100, the National Geographic Concise Atlas of the World, 4th Edition and a trip to Washington, D.C., to represent their state in the National Geographic Bee Championship to be held at National Geographic Society headquarters, May 14-17, 2017. The national champion will receive a $50,000 college scholarship, a lifetime membership in the Society, including a subscription to National Geographic magazine, and all-expenses paid Lindblad expedition to the Galápagos Islands aboard the new National Geographic Endeavour ll.

Soup-er Bowl winners

 
 

Each year the week before the famous Super Bowl, the MS Student Council host the “Soup”er Bowl for grades fifth through eighth. The teams compete by bringing in cans of soup that count as one point each, with the cans going to the high school, NHS Operation Backpack Campaign. This year in the five days, the students brought in 1254 cans, the most ever. The top four winners in the fifth and sixth grade and the top four winners in the seventh and eighth grade advisories get to go to the gym and compete in Soup-er Bowl Challenge, which consists of fun activities to pit one class against another. Those classes that didn’t make the cut still get to go to the gym and root for their favorite teams.

Topping the fifth and sixth grade classes were Mrs. Pratt’s class with 281 cans, followed by, Mrs. Braden’s class, 226 cans; Mrs. Rockwell’s class, 199 cans, and Mrs. Lorenson, 151 cans. Making the cut for seventh and eighth grade advisories were Mrs. Heras seventh grade advisory with 155 cans, followed by, Mr. Robinson’s, 102 cans, Mrs. Boedeker’s, 52 cans, and Mrs. Sadler’s, 48 cans.
