Cardinal Head Spelling Bee Winner

IsaiahWardlaw-winner2016.pngTwenty students participated in the Upsala Area Schools Spelling Bee on Tuesday, February 9. Each classroom held its own competition and the top four spellers from grades 4-8 were eligible to compete in the District Spelling Bee.

After many hard fought rounds the field was narrowed to four spellers, then down to the final two. Shanna Campbell and Isaiah Wardlaw kept competing in so many more rounds we lost count! The words kept getting harder until finally we had two correct words in a row from Isaiah Wardlaw. Congratulations to Isaiah Wardlaw and all of our 2016 contestants.

Thank you to the student council and Mrs. Cheney for setting up the competition. Thank you to Mrs. Henry for moderating the event.
