The third annual Higgins Middle School Spelling Bee involves all 15 clusters at the school representing grades 6, 7 and 8.
Students first prepped for a Bee or Quiz administered by their classroom English teacher in November. The classroom Bees identified the top spellers in each cluster; each school day in December a different cluster will compete to identify the top two spellers in each cluster.
Today in the library, the top placing Grade 7 Broncos competed: M. Eugenio, M. Herman, J. Milewska, A. Haley, M. Murphy, J. Puzzo, K. Aroke, M. Tracchia, N. Freedman, H. Sherman, J. Logiudice, J. Celona and S. Kelley. After 18 rounds, the two Broncos Bee finalists were: J. Puzzo and H. Sherman. They will join the top two spellers from others clusters to make up the 30-member Higgins Spelling Team.
The Spelling Team will practice as a group after school in the library on Tuesdays. Spellers are also invited to come to the library during REACH or Academic Support to prepare.
