Twenty Middle School students participated in the Middle School Spelling Bee on January 18 during MS Chapel. The top five spellers from each grade were determined in October, after a schoolwide classroom bee. Marin Eckerson, seventh-grade, and Katy Burklin, eighth-grade, won 1st and 2nd place respectively. The Bee went 15 rounds, and the winning word was “astonishment.” Both of the top two spellers will advance to Round 1 of the GISA Spelling Bee at Woodward Academy on February 7. Congratulations, Marin and Katy, and to all our Middle School Spelling Bee participants!
