Seventh-grader Wins Middle School Spelling Bee

Three Middle School students recently competed in a virtual spelling bee. After tying for first place on an online spelling test, eighth-grader Nicholas Stein, seventh-grader Ethan Avera, and sixth-grader Emma Hassell competed for several rounds during a virtual Middle School assembly. Avera won the bee with the championship word “chalet.” “Ethan’s next step will be to take another online test at the end of the month to see if he can qualify for the regional bee in March,” said English teacher Mandy Hayes, who organized the bee. “Middle School is very proud of him and grateful for the efforts of all of our spellers even during this pandemic year!”
