Students in grades 5-8 competed in our school spelling bees in this winter. Each participant did a wonderful job. Congratulations to our winners and runner-ups in each grade! Our fifth grade champion, Brandon Cobb, went on to win the 57th Annual Knox County Spelling Bee in round 16 by correctly spelling “malacca.” Brandon is also hoping to qualify for the Regional Spelling Bee which will take place at Ohio University in March.
