On Jan. 8, Palmer Elementary School held the school portion of the National Geographic Geography Bee. Eight fifth-graders vied for the title of school champion. The winner was Jenna Kocik and Clayton Jarvis came in second place. The school is waiting for the results of a written test that Kocik took that will determine if she qualifies for the state portion of the geography bee.
The other finalists in Palmer's geography bee were Adam Tretowicz, Emma Brune, Elisabeth Goulding, Mike George, Jared Webb and Emma Heaton.
