On February 17th fourteen fourth and fifth graders joined together and competed to see who would represent MPE in the state spelling bee. The bee went deep into the word list with students showing a lot of focus, pride, and sportsmanship. They definitely made themselves, their families, and teachers proud of their effort and composure. Please welcome us in congratulating all of our contestants:
Front Row Left to Right: Zybriizs Scott-Valentine, Camay DeSilva (3rd Place), Coretti Desrosiers, Amber Hunter
Middle Row Left to Right: Jonathon Foraker, Dana Combs (2nd Place), Norman Van Scoy, Marcus James, Michael White
Please also wish best of luck to fifth grader Chanelle Ajei who will represent MPE with her best efforts at the state spelling bee on March 5th!!
Thank you to all the parents who came to support all of our wonderful spellers!!
