Middle School Geography Bee

On Wednesday, December 6, Belleville Middle School students participated in the annual Geography Bee. Thirty-one students began on stage at the start of the competition. After that number was reduced to 11, the rules switched over to double-elimination rounds. After 8 rounds, Zachary Thole (8th grade) and Anthony Diaz (7th grade) emerged as the finalists. Zach won the competition and will move on as the school’s representative with a follow-up online test! Congratulations to Tony too for his strong finish!

Thank you to Mrs. Killerlain for running her first middle school bee as the Advanced Learner Coordinator. Thanks as well to Mr. Gentilli and Mr. Swenson for serving as readers.
