Congratulations to the students who moved on to the schoolwide spelling bee. They include Boaz Movit and Max Smudde in the fifth grade, sixth grader Gideon Chaffee, seventh graders Reva Kelly, Noa Smudde, and Eliza Lowenfish, and eighth graders Niamh O’Donovan and Michael Tichy. This year the schoolwide bee will also be online, opening January 22 and completing January 26th, allowing students to take a 50 word spelling assessment on the computer. The two top Washington Latin spellers will proceed to the Cluster Bee, against other nearby schools, and if they prevail, to the Citywide Bee. Both O’Donovan and Kelly participated in the citywide Bee last year.
