The SCS spelling bee is a highly anticipated event each year, especially for elementary students. This year’s bee was significant in the fact that 3rd and 4th graders were allowed and encouraged to participate for the first time.

According to elementary principal, Dr. Heather Lee, the 3rd and 4th graders, “were very excited.”

The spelling bees for grades 3-8 were held on Tuesday, February 23 in the school auditorium.

Elementary classes attended the bees to watch and cheer on the participants. The top winners in the 5th – 8th grade bees have been invited to compete in the Long Island Fellowship of Christian Schools Spelling Bee on March 17
