All Abuzz About the Middle School Spelling Bee

All Abuzz About the Middle School Spelling Bee


     On January, 2020, The Middle School Spelling Bee was an unbeelievable success! Sawyer Pomeroy, in Mrs. Lyman’s Advanced ELA 8 class, won the contest this year, out spelling fourteen contestants over 133 words for fifteen rounds. Her winning word was beatboxing.

    Close to twenty students prepared for the event under the guidance of Mrs. Peters and Mrs. Eagle for nearly three months. The middle school team is thankful to Mrs. Kelley and Mrs. Peters (judges), our custodial staff (under Mr. Reed), Mrs. Wagner for the special badges, and the entire FCSD community for their support to make the event a wonderful (and fun)learning opportunity! Congratulations, Sawyer, and best wishes in the next round at Regionals!
