The second Community Style Spelling Bee was held at Chautauqua Elementary School on May 24. The day was fun for all involved, including The Queen Bees, above: Emily Harrington, Grace Harvey and Rachel Gross. They were winners of the best costume award.

The best spelling teams, tied for first, were The Mariners, consisting of Vera Thorgeirson, Lawrence Rubicz-Clark and Sage Stromberg from Jen Lindsay’s third-grade class. The Speedy Spellers, with Brittany Battisti, Nadia Bradley and Lexie Haugen from Barron Steffen’s fifth-grade class, also performed admirably.

Individual winners on the written test were fifth grader Marin Edwards with third place, fifth-grader Theo Hughes with second place, and fifth grader Isaac Chasan with first place.
