Please congratulate Tori Q., on her success of placing first last week at the District Oral Spelling Bee. She fought a difficult word battle in the final rounds of the bee as she correctly spelled words that included portmanteau and sotto voce. In the final round Tori corrected the spelling of sinistral by her opponent and then correctly spelled livery to earn the title of Spelling Bee Champion.
Tori will represent Millard at the Midwest Regional Oral Spelling Bee in March. This year students will also have the challenge of completing vocabulary along with spelling the word.
The following Kiewit students also participated in the spelling bee: Sierra L., George V., Laureen Q., Jackson S., Vig S., and Spencer H.
