Congratulations to the MPA class champions in grades 4-8 who competed in the National Geographic Bee on Jan. 23, 2019:
The top three finishers, respectively, were Alexander, a fifth-grader; Lauren, a sixth-grader; and Riya, an eighth-grader.
Alexander edged Lauren in the final round, after a long tie, by knowing that the Red Sea connects to the Gulf of Aden via the Bab el-Mandeb, a strait between Africa and the Arabian Peninsula.
As school champion, Alexander will take an online test to see if he qualifies to compete at the state level.
Great job, all!
