McAuliffe Elementary held a geography bee on Jan. 17. Taking first place was Elianna Herrera-Carlson. Rowan Hailey placed second and Danzel Saliente took third.

For 10 years, fourth-grade students at Hastings elementary schools have participated in the Geo-Bee Club. McAuliffe teacher Jodi Glazier said participation in each school's Geo-Bee Club is by invitation only based on test scores and interest in geography and current events.
