Spelling Bee Winner 2013-14!
Congratulations Hannah for placing 4th at the Scripps Spelling Bee on Saturday, March 1st, at Cuyahoga Community College. She correctly spelled words, such as "hollandaise, plausible, welfarism, and salmonella," and made it to the 11th round of competition. No other speller from Independence Middle School has ever made it through 10 rounds of contending. And since Hannah is only a seventh-grader, that makes it even more outstanding! Respectively, Mrs. Jill Wagner will be working to help prepare Hannah for next year's contest, as well.
