Dear CAPE and ERC families,
We would like to invite you to participate in the Geography Bee.
This is a wonderful opportunity for 4th-8th graders to work on those geography skills and perhaps win a prize!
So far, we only have 11 students registered.
Come on down and give them some competition!
For more information, tips and helps, check out the National Geographic Geography Bee website: http://www.nationalgeographic.com/geographybee
You may also want to see the finals on youtube.

Even if you do not participate, come join us to watch and cheer for the students.
