Spelling Bee Champions to Compete at Regionals
Posted 10/12/19

Venetia Valley School is proud of our spelling champs and the curiosity and grit reflected in their studies.  Our champions work hard for everything they earn. 4th grader Brandon and 6th grader Valentina are students in our Bilingual Program.  By competing so well in this English competition, they are demonstrating how effectively Spanish language skills transfer to English in our program. 5th grade Cole also showed amazing progress.  Last year, he spelled three of the challenging words correctly.  This year, he nearly swept the competition and came in second place.  Cole is grateful to his family's support, particularly that of his big brother Caden, who won first place in the San Rafael Regional Spelling Bee last year ,and was willing to share his study techniques.  6th grade spelling champion Emmanuel has also emerged as an outstanding competitor with the most important quality - sportsmanship in remembering to offer caring congratulations to everyone who came out to compete.  

The work is not over for our spelling champs.  They are still hard at work studying for the upcoming San Rafael Regionals to take place Thursday, October 10, 2019 at 3:30 p.m. at the County Office of Education – 1111 Las Gallinas Avenue, San Rafael.  Who will win? Who can tell?  The suspense is mounting.  We wish our young representatives well.
