Haderlein Elementary students competed in the school’s annual Spelling Bee Tuesday, Jan. 14 and Wednesday, Jan. 15.
The Division I Spelling Bee took place Thursday and consisted of second-and third-graders.
On Tuesday, fourth-and fifth-graders and winners from Division I competed in the Division II Spelling Bee.
To compete, students first participated in classroom competitions to determine who would represent their classrooms in their respective divisions.
In the Division I Bee, third-grader Addy Martin placed first, second-grader Kenley Johnson placed second and third-grader Avery Brooks placed third.
On Tuesday, fifth-grader Abigail Stansbury won the Division II Spelling Bee by spelling “proclamation” correctly. Fifth-grader Robbie Bruning placed second and fourth-grader Autumn Avery placed third.
Regarding her win, Abigail said, “I’m excited and terrified for the county spelling bee. I’ve practiced a lot.”
Division II winners will compete in the Crawford County Spelling Bee Monday, Feb. 10 in Frontenac against students from neighboring schools.
