Each January, all 6th grade students participate in the National Geographic Geography Bee. All 6th grade students participate in the 7 preliminary rounds of the Bee. Students have 15 seconds to answer each question and must start to give their answer before the time limit is up. The Geography Bee questions are designed to test the students' knowledge of geography. The top 3 winners from 6th grade then participate in the District Geography Bee with 7th and 8th grade participants.
