During the month of January 5th through 8th grades participated in 2 different Bees.
They began by participating in the Scripps National Spelling Bee. All students took a written test that was followed by an oral test in the classroom. The top 11 spellers then competed to be the school winning speller. After 24 rounds of spelling, Rebecca Baier and Drew Hunt were the top two spellers in the school. Rebecca will go to Thorp on February 15 to compete at the regional level. Drew will get to go also as an alternate. Congratulations to all spellers!
The second Bee the students participated in was the National Geography Bee sponsored by National Geographic. The students again took both a written and oral test in the classroom.
