Student to Compete in Regional Spelling Bee

Robert Frost Middle School held its first annual spelling bee as part of the Howard Scripps National Spelling Bee. Preliminary rounds began with a written quiz that was administered during all English classes. Fifteen standout spellers scored 100 and advanced to the building-wide competition. Following an intense battle of words, student Kailey Tenn was named the winner and will now participate at the regional level in March at Hofstra University. If successful at this tournament, Kailey will join students nationwide at the televised Howard Scripps Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C.
