GeoBowl & World Culture Day

We need your help to make GeoBowl & World Culture Day happen.  

A 4th grade parent has offered to lead the 2021 Virtual GeoBowl, but he can't do it alone! We need volunteers from all participating grades (3rd, 4th and 5th). With your support, we can make this happen.   

We need volunteers to plan World Culture Day, too. Let us know if you can pitch in to orchestrate this exciting day of virtual world travel for our students.  

Contact Jennifer at events@scespta.org or Brenna at communications@scespta.org
