New Elementary Round Results in a Tie!

Top Row: Emma Fleck, Brendan Szeto, Steven Qie from Eliot School Bottom Row:  Jackie Liebman, Lucy McHugh, Caroline Berney from Broadmeadow School

Fifty teams came together to compete on March 15th at the special Sunday edition of the 24th Annual Spelling Bee, including elementary, middle and high school students, teachers, parents and local business people. Due to some terrific spelling, the new elementary school round resulted in a tie between the Broadmeadow School and the Eliot School. The winning word was “ferocious.”

Congratulations to the 2015 Bee Champions:  High Rock/Pollard Teachers!

In the championship round, High Rock & Pollard teachers Caitlin Harding, Anna Kuebler, and Maryellen Shea came away as the victors after spelling “xerocolous,” which means thriving in a relatively dry environment.
