2014 Spelling Bee

​Top Spellers!

Janu​​ary 29, 2014

Congratulations to Willow Creek's Spelling Bee finalists! Those who are going on to the district Spelling Bee on February 7 are (from left to right) Elyse Sommer, Bryn Noe​, Caroline Korell, and Justin Sheu (alternate).

On January 28, 2014, Willow Creek hosted its school Spelling Bee. Participants were selected based on a written test given to interested third, fourth and fifth grade students. There were twenty students that qualified (listed below). Words were spelled orally with a strict protocol. One miss of a letter or a repetition and a student had to be disqualified. All students were still in the running through round five! We continued for 16 rounds in order to narrow our participants to the final three, with one additional alternate. Words like bonsai, eucalyptus, iridescent, and tonsillitis were a few of the tough sticklers! It was certainly a fun afternoon, with lots of nerves and excitement emanating from Mrs. Heaton's room.​
