The final round for the spelling bee welcomed students from grades 5-6-7-8: Felipe Serrano, Claire Vonboetticher, Sophia Fielding, Cookie Bolling, Audrey Buck, Peyton Kuhn-Farr, Arnav Vangala, Trent Eichelberger, and Charlie Heiskell.
After attempting words such as indelible, reprimand, aphorism, concertina, electrolysis, solomon, lobelia, fuchsia, cliches, and sachet- students began to be eliminated. Two boys (Arnav and Felipe) edged out the other spellers with Arnav taking the title of the 2018-19 St. Francis Spelling Bee champion.
Kudos to all who participated, especially those who made it to the final round.
Congratulations to Arnav who will appear at the county level spelling bee on February 5th!
