Spelling Bee

On Friday, December 15th, Shuford Elementary held its annual School Spelling Bee ๐Ÿthat included 20 students, 2 students from each class in grades 3rd through 5th, that included their individual class' winner and runner-up. We are so proud of all of this year's participants.

This year's Bee lasted 23 Rounds and ended with the championship word, flea, which was spelled correctly by Dalton Mitchell, a 5th-grade student from Mrs. Lingle's class.

Dalton, pictured above, will continue on to the District's Spelling Bee, along with 4 other students who will represent Shuford as the Top 5 Spellers.

The Top 5 Shuford students who will continue on the District Bee include:

  1. Dalton Mitchell, School Spelling Bee Winner
  2. Emerson Humphrey, School Spelling Bee Runner-Up
  3. Lacey Bolus
  4. Isabella Smith
  5. Kailey Walker
