Spelling Bee Champions!

Congratulations to Hannah Horlick and Charlotte (Charley) Sandeman on being selected to represent Juniper Ridge Intermediate at the Regional Spelling Bee in February. In a silent auditorium filled with the entire school population, nine of our top spellers in the school competed for the top two positions and the chance to go on to the next level of the Spelling Bee Competition. After multiple rounds, taking over an hour, we were down to our two finalists, both of whom would represent JRI. After 8 more rounds, it was decided that it would be a tie and that these two I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E spellers would be co-champions of JRI. Congratulations to you both!
