HMS Spelling Bee

How do you spell?
2010    stromuhr
2011   cymotrichous
2012   guetapens
2013   knaidel
2014   feuilleton and stichomythia

These were the winning words for National Spelling Bee for the past five years.

On Wednesday, January 14, Harrison Middle School held the School Spelling Bee. The Bee began with ten students and the 100th word from the National Spelling Bee 2015 Spelling List. It took eight rounds to "crown" the two finalists. The final two words spelled were skirmish and edification. Congratulations to all participants; with a total of 496 students in Grades 5, 6, 7, and 8 the finalists did very well.

Our results are:

Champions:    Stefan Bell, Grade 5 and Bella Solari, Grade 6
Alternate:        Lulu Rasor, Grade 8
Participants:    Grade 6: Ellie Gabrielson and Lee Federle
                        Grade 7: Will Nicholas and Sam O’Donnell (Absent: Michael McNeil)
                        Grade 8: Vicky Williams (Absent: Hanna Zimmerman)

Stefan and Bella will compete in the County-Wide Spelling Bee on February 11th, with a snow date of February 12th. The time is 6:00-8:30 at the Falmouth Middle School.
