History Bee Winners

During the months of December and January, students at Memorial Middle School participated in the prestigious History Bee Competition. All students competed in the first round of the event in their social studies classes. Students with the top ten school-wide scores qualified for the semi-final round which took place on Thursday, January 8, 2015. At the conclusion of the last round, five students qualified as finalists:

·       Nicholas Basile, 8th grade
·       Anthony Fasano, 8th grade
·       Kellyann Lettis, 8th grade
·       David Wendt, 8th grade
·       Thomas Zamroz, 8th grade

Next week the five students will take an online test which will be graded by the History Bee administrators.  A select number of students in the region will qualify for the local competition.  Winners from the local competition will qualify for the national contest.  Congratulations to our students for their outstanding participation in the Geography Bee. Thank you to Mrs. Danielle Azar, Mrs. Amanda Steele, and the grades 5-8 social studies teachers for coordinating this worthwhile and rewarding event.
