|Our champion, Zach, with Clare and Noah|
On Wednesday November 21, 2012 SEMS-East concluded their 2012 spelling bee. Students felt the pressure of standing on stage and speaking into the microphone. Many teachers brought their classes to witness the contest and provide an audience. Around 70 students completed the pencil and paper spelling bee and 30 were chosen to compete live on stage.
After 13 rounds we were down the the final five. Round fifteen began with our final three, Zach Anderson, Clare Boone and Noah Leftridge. At the end of the day it was Zach and Clare left on stage. By spelling p-o-s-t-m-o-r-t-u-m correctly, Zach was crowed the SEMS-East spelling be champion. Clare and Noah finished in 2nd and 3rd respectively. The top 3 will continue on to the regional event at WITF public media center on February 23 2013. Thank you to Mr. Logan and Mrs. Folmar and all the students who competed.
