Congratulations to Landon Ordway and Gavin McGinnis, winners of the Middle School’s recent 7th-8th Grade Spelling Bees!
• 7th grade/Landon Ordway: Winning word = “throes”
• 8th grade/Gavin McGinnis: Winning word = “fortuitous”
Spelling Bees are not only fun, but a valuable educational experience. Students learn the definition, pronunciation and roots of words; gain vocabulary competency which helps with reading and writing; have a competitive opportunity; get greater knowledge through the understanding of a a word’s origin and etymology; and further develop cognitive skills and confidence!
Congratulations to Landon and Gavin, and to everyone who participated!
