Grade level winners for Classroom Bees took part in today’s School Spelling Bee. The morning started after quick a pep talk for all participants from Mr. Schaefer, who served as the announcer of the event.
Mrs. Valdepenas welcomed the audience and reminded all students about competition rules before kicking off the practice round. Once the official competition began, audience members clapped and cheered at the end of each round as the number of students competing drew ever smaller and words became more challenging.
Congratulations to 7th grader Leo W. who will represent St. Mary’s at next month’s Diocesan Spelling Bee! Special thanks to teachers Mrs. Hartgrove, Mrs. Funk and Ms. Schwartzkopf who served as judges and all parents who were attendance.
