As we head into the weekend, I want to congratulate all of the participants of our 2nd Annual Spelling Bee. We had 21 finalists participate, and all 21 got through the first two rounds!! What is even more amazing is that our final two participants are still competing! They both spelled all words correctly from the prepared list all students were given. So, we will be bringing those two spellers back together next week to determine a winner for Willow Grove. We are very proud of all who participated. Here's the list of Willow Grove Spellers: Grade 4 Abey Alex Ethan Hyppolite Olivia Koehler Kaylee Kolesar Prabhdeep Multani Raegan Philips Adrian Tavares Jasmine Wood Grade 5 Emma Gabriel Olivia LoPresti John Piperato Grade 6 Kristen Barna Harrison Gerson Katarina Gutenberger Elena Hill Aiden Hoey Jada Johnson Manjot Kaur William Santana Mekhi Tisdale Alessandro Troncoso Willow Grove PRIDE - they've got it!!
