                           Congratulations to Alex McEntarffer, the champion of the third annual 5th Grade Spelling Bee! All
                           the contestants did a wonderful job, including everyone who participated in the written tests. These
                           students studied over 200 extremely difficult words, and they were able to memorize most of
                           them. The five other finalists were Amber Prevedello, Shriyansh Sharma, Matt Lee, Austin Holly, and
                           Jessica Wicks.
