2014-15 Celebrating Academic Excellence Winners

Elementary Spelling Bee

Snow may have forced a postponement of this year’s Celebrating Academic Excellence event, but in the end, it was smarts that carried the day.

The rescheduled competition was held this past weekend with ideal weather and a huge turnout from both contestants and their supporters. The friendly competition pits students and schools against each other in a range of categories from spelling and geography to science and a Lego competition.

The students started preparing for the event at the start of the school year by competing at their home school. In addition, the winning spellers will go on to compete in state competition.
Middle School Spelling Bee
The middle school and elementary school spelling bees always wrap up the day’s events and draw a big crowd. You can see videos of both competitions below. In addition, the top placing contestants were honored by the Board of Education during this week’s meeting.

Congratulations to all the students as well as the parents, families, staff and teachers who helped them compete.
