The School Spelling Bee competition was held on Monday, February 1st, in the LRC. Two student winners from each grade in seven and eight participated. It was a real “nail biter” as competitors pondered and reflected on the words given by moderator, Ms. Edwina Mills.
Linda Zhang of 8-6 placed first while Momin Anwar of 7-3 placed second. Both students will move forward to the Regional competition. The Telegram Regional Spelling Bee will be held on Saturday, February 27, at Holy Heart (HHM) auditorium. There is registration for our winners, which begins at 10:30 AM at HHM auditorium. The spellers will then move to the stage at approximately 11:50 AM. There is a hospitality room, opening at 10:30 AM with tea, coffee, sandwiches, cookies, and muffins for all to enjoy. Family and friends are invited – there is no admission, although Holy Heart Theatre accepts donations for the food bank. The show starts at 2:00 PM.
Come out and support both Linda and Momin on the 27th.
