    Grade 5 through Grade 8 students competed in the district wide Geography Bee on May 16 at Park Avenue School.  Teams of students for Cleveland Street, Oakwood Avenue Community, Rosa Parks Community, Park Avenue and Lincoln Avenue Schools were organized by grade levels to see which team could answer the most questions relating to locations in these United States, mountains and lakes around the world, geographic coordinates, popuations and more.  The fifth and sixth graders battled it out in elimination rounds before the final competition.  The winning team was Rosa Parks Community School with a score of 50 points and second place winner Park Avenue School, with a score of 30.

    After elimination rounds, the seventh grade winner was Cleveland Street School, scoring an impressive 80 points against Lincoln Avenue School team, with a score of 30.  

    The Geography Bee Coordinators were Ms. Linda Epps, Supervisor of Social Studies and Technology, Dr. Denise Harlem, Technology Coordinator, and Mr. Marc Levenson, Social Studies teacher at Cleveland Street School, who served as emcee for the evening.  The Bee judges were Dr. Terri Russo, Director of Curriculum and Instruction, and Assistant Principals Devonii Reid and Joshua Chuy.  Principal Dr. Erica Stewart managed the game components.
