SPELLING BEE CHAMPIONS!
Porter-Gaud captured 1st place in the SCISA Regional Spelling Bee team competition held yesterday at Calhoun Academy in St. Matthews, S.C.
Eighteen students competed per grade level (3rd - 8th) and two winners were named for each grade. Each student earned 1 point for participating and bonus points if he/she placed in the top 4 of his/her grade level bee.
Porter-Gaud conducted grade level spelling bee competitions back in October and November. The winning Porter-Gaud team consisted of:
3rd Grade: Caleb Hays (4th Place) & George West
4th Grade: Xsavior Wells (Winner) & Charlotte West (Winner)
8th Grade: Brady Lyden (4th Place) & Anderson Toole (Winner)
At the end of the day, Porter-Gaud had named seven winners (42 points) and three 4th place finishers (6 points). These points, combined with the (12) participant points, gave the P-G team a remarkable total of 60 points and overall 1st place in the regional competition. Addlestone Hebrew took second place with 32 points, and third place went to First Baptist with 28 points.
The team will compete again in February. Stay tuned!
Professor Harold Hill storms through River City, Iowa, promising the people he will start a band program. What they don't know is he is a lovable fraud. This hilarious classic musical is great fun for the entire family.
