Our second annual spelling bee was held using the Scripps National Spelling Bee online testing platform. Sixth grader, Joaquin Vila, was named school-level champion and will move on to the North Jersey Spelling Bee! Please join us in wishing Joaquin the best of luck in the next level of the competition. Eighth grader, Lily Aspirany, and seventh grader, Crismarly Fernandez, tied for second place in our local spelling bee! All winners received Scripps Spelling Bee headphones. Vila also received a trophy. Memorial School Principal, Mr. Scholtz, and District Supervisor of Language Arts, Mrs. Castrovinci, delivered the prizes to the winners.
Congratulations to all of our school spelling bee participants who improved their spelling, increased their vocabularies, learned concepts, and developed correct English usage that will help them throughout their every day lives. We are all proud of your achievements!
