 Keller goes to 2014 Iowa National Geographic State Bee

Noah Keller from Excelsior has qualified as one of the semifinalists eligible to compete in the 2015 Iowa National Geographic State Bee. The contest will be held at the University of Northern Iowa on Friday, March 27, 2015.

This is the second level of the National Geographic Bee competition, which is now in its 27th year. School Bees were held in schools with fourth- through eighth-grade students throughout the state to determine each school champion. School champions then took a qualifying test, which they submitted to the National Geographic Society. The National Geographic Society has invited up to 100 of the top-scoring students in each of the 50 states, District of Columbia, Department of Defense Dependents Schools and U.S. territories to compete in the state Bees.

Each state champion will receive $100, the “National Geographic Atlas of the World, 10th Edition,” a medal, and a trip to Washington, D.C., to represent their state in the National Geographic Bee Championship to be held at National Geographic Society headquarters, May 11-13, 2015.

Dr. Mulholland was nominated along with five other administrators to be recognized for their contributions to the outstanding success of school district activity programs.

In a letter to Dr. Mulholland, IHSAA Executive Director Richard Wulkow stated,“It is obvious to us that your work served to enhance the educational athletic experience of students in your community as well as the other school activities you cover.” Wulkow added, “I extend the Athletic Association’s most sincere congratulations to you on receiving this award and for your years of service to students.”

Congratulations to Dr. Mulholland!

 Financial Literacy Summit

Teachers, students and parents are encouraged to attend the Iowa Financial Literacy Summit on May 5 in Des Moines. The Iowa Department of Education is hosting this event as part of a broader effort to improve Iowa students' financial literacy skills.

The purpose of the summit is to raise awareness that making smart, responsible financial decisions is an important part of a great education; to provide teaching resources to help students meet the financial literacy component of our state standards; and to connect Iowans with community resources and programs that support financial literacy education.

Tickets are available through April 21. For more information, including the summit agenda and registration information, visit
