The bee has been held every year since 1989.  If you are bored over winter break, you can check out the National Geography Bee website to brush up on your geography facts!  https://www.nationalgeographic.org/bee/study  They have a daily quiz where you can see sample questions.   For example:
Lexington and Bowling Green are cities located in which U.S. state?  Check the announcements tomorrow for the answer!

Jay Asher, the author of 13 Reasons Why also wrote What Light.  This is about a girl whose family runs a Christmas tree farm in Oregon.  Interested?  We have this book in the JMS media center.  A great read for winter break.  Not interested in a Christmas book?  If you are a fan of Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, an awesome book, we would like to suggest Book Scavenger by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman.  A book that is about a game where books are hidden and clues to find them are revealed through puzzles.  We have this one in the media center, too.  Get a great book from the JMS media center.

Have you noticed our Giving Tree by the office? Would you like to be a blessing to a preschooler here in our community? JMS is collecting books for preschoolers from now until December 18th. Please consider purchasing a book for a young child and clip it on our Giving Tree or place it in the boxes under the tree. We hope to wrap and deliver these books to the preschool children at the Nora Stewart Daycare just down the street on December 18th after school. STUCO will walk the books over to the daycare and let each child choose a book to keep. STUCO will read the books to the children, and then they will get to take the books home as their very own. This is a wonderful way to spread holiday cheer and be a light to our community. Also, if you have some gently used preschool books you can donate, we will give these to the daycare to keep for the children to enjoy at the daycare as well. Place the new or gently used books on or under the tree over the next week and a half. We look forward to sharing joy with the youngsters. Thanks for your help.
