Geography Bee Finalists Compete
In front of very full bleachers in the gym at MEH on Tuesday morning, the school's nine geography bee finalists competed to earn their way into the next round, the state level competition.
The MEHMS annual school-wide National Geography Bee contestants are determined by preliminary testing to place into competition by grade. The three students from each grade who came out on top were in front of the whole school yesterday demonstrating their knowledge on U.S. and world geography and map questions. The winner was Jack Rifkin below and the runner-up was Evan Lankford. The other finalists were Janine Anderson, Jack Biggs, Harrison Hackett, Katherine Hall, Ben Martin, Brigid Pierce and Nicholas Teply.
Today, we welcome the release of the first issue of the Husky Prints, MEH’s newspaper! This issue features articles on a variety of subjects, from an explanation of MYP to a profile of our next president. It also includes an advice column and the winning photos from our recent photography contest. It will be available here on the school website and on Schoology. Be sure to check it out!
