Latin School Students Compete in Spelling Bee

Oct 24 2014

On Tuesday, October 8, the Brother Joseph C. Fox Latin School had its annual Spelling Bee in the Kellenberg Memorial High School auditorium. Thirty contestants from grades six, seven, and eight battled through twelve rounds of challenging words such as entanglement, harmonious, fluorescent, and even rhinoceros. The students continued with endless energy until it came down to the last two winning words – “silhouette” and “technique”. The winner of the Spelling Bee was Christian Morales of 8D, and the runner-up was Catherine Dotzler of 8B. Christian Morales will continue his spelling achievements and represent Kellenberg Memorial in the local county spelling competition at Hofstra University in February 2015. Congratulations to Christian and everyone who participated in the Spelling Bee!
