Geography Bee Champion Has Worldly Knowledge

Sixth-grader John Hartnett earned the title of Middle School Geography Bee champion on Jan. 4 by answering more geography questions correctly than his opponents in the schoolwide bee. He had close competition from his peers, including eighth-grader Alisha Uduevbo, who was named runner-up.
 
Among many questions, contestants were asked to name the most populous country in Scandinavia (Sweden), which lake Saginaw Bay in Michigan is an inlet of (Lake Huron) and in which country Darien National Park is located (Panama).
 
Answering questions based on topics covered in the middle school social studies curriculum, the students earned their spots in the schoolwide competition by first winning at the classroom level.
 
As part of the National Geographic GeoBee, John will now take an online qualifying test for the state level of the competition.
 

MS Cheerleaders Spread Cheer

Middle school cheerleaders like to cheer on and off the field, and their holiday spirit brightened the season for residents of local rehabilitation centers on Dec. 20. The team, along with its coach Doreen Kobus, traveled to the Glen Cove Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation and the Marquis Rehabilitation & Nursing Center to sing holiday songs and perform uplifting cheers. They also brought gifts handmade by the sixth-grade Home and Careers students.

Ms. Kobus said the cheerleaders were thrilled to share the holiday spirit with the patients at the rehabilitation centers. “They wanted to bring joy to those who may not be home for the holidays,” she said.

Giving Back for the Holidays

Thinking of others comes naturally to the sixth-grade class, and this holiday season they thought of a local charity that would benefit from their help. The class donated toys and gift cards to the Matthew Fetzer Toy Drive, which distributes the items to children who have to spend the holidays in the hospital. The Matthew Fetzer Foundation was established in memory of Matthew Fetzer, who lost his life to cancer when he was a student at Bayville Intermediate School. When Matthew was sick, he dreamed of bringing toys to sick children when he got better. His family made sure his dream would come true in his honor, and the school community supports their efforts each year.

Sixth-grade teachers Evelyn Mason and Ann Monsees took their students caroling around Bayville to spread holiday cheer through the neighborhood and collected $200 for the Matthew Fetzer Toy Drive. They presented the donation and several bags of toys to Anne Fetzer on Dec. 18. 

The donations were distributed to children in local hospitals for them to enjoy.

The entire district hopes all those children who couldn’t spend the holidays at home with their families had a happy holiday season.
