Today, Wednesday, May 16, we held our annual spelling bee in the gym.  Three students from each third and fourth grade class were the participants.  Each class gave a spelling test to all the students.  The top three best spellers from each class became our contestants.  Tobin Landen, Emmerson Landreth and Mason Frye were the contestants from Mrs. Hoffman's class.   Mrs. Schmidt was the announcer/pronouncer and Mrs. Motz and Mrs. Anderson were the judges.  The contest went 9 rounds with students dropping out in each round as they misspelled the words.  It was tough competition throughout.  The winner was fourth grader William Twiss with Tristin Fry placing second and Emmerson Landreth (a third grader) placing third.  Congratulations to Emmerson from our class for placing third!!!!
