Students representing fourth and fifth grade classes participated in the 11th Annual La Mariposa Spelling Bee this afternoon. Students competed in their own class bees to earn their spots in today’s contest. Our tigers were impressive today, correctly spelling words like intrinsic, incredible, amigo (yep that’s spanish, go figure), innermost, and recyclable. The bee went eleven rounds this year. The championship word was planetarium. Courtney will be our alternate for finishing second. Abby will represent La Mariposa at the Ventura County Spelling Bee held at CSUCI in March.
Great job to all our tiger spellers and good luck, Abby!
Special thanks to Mrs. Hughes for organizing the Spelling Bee and also Mrs. Berson and Ms. Pearson for judging today’s contest.
