Geography Bee

We are competing in our first annual Geography Bee this year! Here are the details if you are a 4th-8th grader.

  • 4th and 5th graders will have the option to participate this year in the preliminary Bee; all 6th-8th graders will be required to be a part of the preliminary Bee--to be completed by December 14th.
  • If you have a 4th or 5th grader interested in taking the test, please contact Mr. Rhoda (erhoda@arprep.org) for the enrollment information and procedures, no later than Tuesday, November 27th.
  • From the preliminary test, 10 students will be selected to participate in the ARPS Geography Bee (January 16). The ARPS Geography Bee Champion will then have the opportunity to participate in the State Bee in March, should they advance.


Whether your child chooses to participate or not, head to https://www.nationalgeographic.org/bee/study/ to find out more about the Bee and ways to prepare for the contest.

May the best "geographer" win!

Our Spelling Bee is also on the horizon and all students, Kinder-8th, will be able to participate!
