Have you heard of the MDE Spelling Bee? Well, I bet you have! The Bee has been at MDE since 2008. This year was the seventh year of the Bee at MDE. It was held on November 18. To qualify for the Bee, each class in the 3rd, 4th and 5th grades held a “classroom bee.” The top two spellers from each class got to be in the school spelling bee. Here are the Classroom Bee Winners:
Ratliff: Peter Gulstad and Lindley Maida
Lincecum: Carter Klebuc and Luca Burns
Schwabenland: Vivian Ye and Ahmad Hadidi
Lindsay: Jack Monk and Isabella Norton
Withem: Nick Bhasin and Ethan Mamera
Smalling: Jack Kiani and Sydney Krenz
Borg: Avi Dubey and Katie Whitely
Deans: Lauren Mamera and Areeb Quasi
Gordon: Amelia Scheuermann and Ryan Hay
Moxley: Cole Hartung and Yousif Al-Jadir
Congrats to all the winners of the class spelling bee!
In case you didn't go to the spelling bee, the proud champion was Sydney Krenz! Her sister, Hannah, was champion for two years when she was at MDE! Wow! The Krenzes sure know how to spell! The runner-up was Cole Hartung. It lasted for one hour and thirty minutes. The winning word was Carte Blanche. Both Cole and Sydney will compete in the District Wide Spelling Bee in February! Way to go, Cole & Sydney!!!
