Our school conducted the annual Spelling Bee on January 24, with class competitions and a whole school competition for grades 4 and 5. Congratulations to our school champion, Naima Elmera, a Fifth grader in Mrs. Godbout’s class. Kaden Wood, in Mrs. Rehm’s fourth grade class, was our runner-up and will be the alternate to the state bee. The 2018 New Hampshire State Spelling Bee will be held on Saturday, February 24, 2018, at 1:00 PM, at the Capitol Center for the Arts in Concord.
