Memorial Middle School holds third annual Spelling Bee

Memorial Middle School has wrapped up its third annual Spelling Bee. Students first competed in class competition during language arts. Two winners were successful in moving on to the next round. The finals were then held with 36 competitors. The top five spellers are featured left to right in the photo: Jillian T. (first place), Fouad S., Jake P. (second place), Matteo V., and Giovanni P.

Jake and Jillian battled it out for seven rounds before Jillian ultimately claimed victorious! She is now moving on to the North Jersey Spelling Bee. Congratulations to all of our participants! Not only did these students earn this recognition, but they also improved their spelling skills, increased vocabulary, and developed correct English usage that will help them in their everyday lives.
