Twenty-five Stanley School fourth graders qualified to participate in the 2013 National Geographic Geography Bee held on Jan. 11, 2013. The top ten scorers of the first seven preliminary rounds made it through to the championship round.
After a tough battle, Jack Lockhart took top honors while John Caponigro came in a close second. As the Stanley School champion, Jack then took a written test provided by National Geographic to see if he will be one of only 100 fourth through eighth graders across Massachusetts to qualify for the statewide Geography Bee.
We are still awaiting the results.
Congratulations to the winner of the 2013 Stanley School Spelling Bee, Devon Alperin, and to the Runner-up, Sarah Tribendis!
All 23 fourth grade participants worked hard spelling challenging words on stage Friday, Feb. 1st. Devon will compete in the Annual Daily Item Regional Spelling Bee on Friday, March 15th, in Lynn. Best of Luck!
100th Day Projects:
Monday, Feb. 25th, we celebrated our 100th day of school (along with Wear your PJs to School Day).
The kindergarten students had a museum of their 100th day projects for the whole school to visit.
The projects were quite colorful and creative.
