2020 Spelling Bee

2020 Spelling Bee
Posted on 01/23/2020


On the evening of Thursday, January 16th, the Spelling Bee took place in the John Muir Large Group Room. Almost 70 students qualified for the bee, and ultimately 21 courageous qualifiers accepted the challenge to compete.

After an hour and a half, 8th grader Kaedyn Kelly earned the championship after spelling the word “accelerate.” 2nd place went to 6th grader Christiana Nordstrom, and 6th grader Emma Huggenvik rounded out the top 3.

Special thanks to Muir staff members: Ms. Stelzer, Ms. Cohrs, and Ms. Bores; and even to district Superintendent Dr. Hilts who helped officiate the event.

On February 11th, the top 3 will have the opportunity to represent the Highlanders at the Regional Spelling Bee in Merrill. Good luck Kaedyn, Christiana, and Emma!
