Each year, Everest Academy students have months to memorize and practice spelling bee words. For second-grade students, this is their first experience with the spelling bee. They compete in an in-class spelling bee. Congratulations to our second-grade spellers:
1st Place: Jacob Luginski
2nd Place: Max Thewes
3rd Place: Micah Abraham
Third and fourth-grade students compete within their classrooms to advance to a final competition. Students seat spaced out in folding chairs to cheer on their classmates. Each contestant lowered their mask when they approached the microphone to spell their word. Finalists for third and fourth grades were: Vinay Iyer, Isabella Wheeler, Emma Gulda, Bryce Anderson, Alejandro Gonzalvo, Daniel Megala, Olivia Rydesky, and Nash Wolcott.
Congratulations to the third and fourth-grade winners. The winning word was semicolon.
3rd Place: Emma Gulda
2nd Place: Olivia Rydesky
1st Place: Alejandro Gonzalvo
