Our 8th grade student, Ian Williams, has won the Montana Geography Bee. On Friday, March 31, Ian competed against 95 finalists from all over the state at the National Geographic Bee competition at the University of Montana. Ian will compete in May in Washington D.C. for the national title and over $85,000 in scholarships. Good luck Ian! To read the full Missoulian story, click here.
"The feeling that each child’s voice matters, that kids are smart enough to have a say in their own education, that everyone learns differently and shouldn’t be expected to learn in a one size fits all model, that elementary school is about learning how to get along with others, how to work together, and how to figure out how best YOU learn. These are the things that I come back to when I think about my awesome preschool through eighth grade years."
