Benton Heights Elementary School of the Arts held its schoolwide Spelling Bee at 9:00 AM on Tuesday, December 3, 2013. Seventeen participants represented the third through fifth grade classes. They were supported and cheered on during the Bee by their teachers, classmates, and family members.
Excitement filled the auditorium as students spelled words from a variety of language origins. Audience participants were engaged during the Bee with a Powerpoint showing the correct spelling of each word following the judges’ decision regarding the correctness of the oral spelling of the word.
Fifteen rounds were needed to determine the 2013-2014 Spelling Bee winner, Fifth Grader, Adriana M. and runner-up, Third Grader, Levy S. Adriana will represent BHESA at the UCPS Spelling Bee, held at CATA in mid January.
We are so proud of all of our Spelling Bee participants.
