The Annual GHCDS Scripps Spelling Bee Competition was held on Thursday, Dec. 15th in the Pavilion.
Students from grades 4-8 were competing for the school Bee Champion title, after winning their class room competitions last week.
The Bee went 14 rounds, with 8th grader Alex Fleming taking first place and 7th grader Ian Ainger placing second. 5th grade student Jasem Rahhal competed through the 10th round, before taking 3rd place. All of our spelling Bee participants did a wonderful job; we are so proud of all of them.
Alex will move-on to the district Scripps Spelling Bee on Feb. 16th (location TBD) and if he is successful there, on March 16. Ian will act as the alternate for all competitions.
Special thanks to Mrs. Jane Coles (pronouncer), Mrs. Wendy Canning (alternate pronouncer), Dr. Leslie Hamdorf (Judge), Ms. Kiiomie Pedrini (facilities coordinator) and Mr. Mark Locher (tech and zoom coordinator).
