KMS Spelling Bee

It was a fabulous Tuesday evening as spellers from sixth, seventh, and eighth grade gathered in the cafeteria to celebrate words! To all who participated, your school is very proud of your hard work and effort. And we are looking forward to honoring you by name at a future, school-wide assembly!

Seventh-grader Hannah Sweetman spelled her way into third place at the Bee! Vienna Gurev, an eighth-grade student and spelling bee veteran, took second place! And the winner of this year’s KMS Spelling Bee was sixth-grader Sarah Myers! She will be representing our school at the Chester County Spelling Bee on February 10th! Congratulations to our place winners, wonderful job to all spellers, and a huge thank you to all the volunteers who made last night’s competition possible!

Happy spelling to all!
