Joshua Mintzer prevailed over 24 other students who had all qualified for the final rounds of the Geography Bee. There were many rounds of tough questions covering all the continents of the world. One by one, the other students were eliminated until it was down to two! Joshua and Zachary Kasuba were the last two standing. The championship round consisted of three extremely challenging questions. In the end, Joshua answered one more question correctly than Zachary, and became the 2014 Chestnutwold champion. He will now take a 100 question written test in an attempt to qualify for the Pennsylvania State Geography Bee. Good luck Joshua!
Chestnutwold students in the mentor program visited Surrey Services for Seniors on Monday, November 24th and Tuesday, November 25th. Students had the opportunity to tour the building, meet with staff members and seniors and join in on a variety of activities, including an exercise class, basket weaving and ping-pong. The seniors have been invited to our winter celebration in December, and we will be visiting the center again later this school year. More info about the mentor program is available on page 13 of the school handbook.
