Good luck to Washington 5th Grader Gunner Antolin in the Los Angeles County Spelling Bee!
And congratulations to the 31 2nd through 5th graders who won their class spelling bees to compete in the First Annual Washington Elementary Spelling Bee!
They all spelled their little hearts out and deserve so much recognition for their bravery and efforts. But, alas, there could only BEE one winner to represent Washington at the Los Angeles-area Spelling Bee. Here is Gunner spelling that last word that made him the Washington champ, while first runner up, 2nd grader Isabelle Chun, watched anxiously:
Congratulations Gunner, and good luck! And special thanks to Michelle Dale and Carrie Thompson, the PTA members who brought this exciting and educational opportunity to our school!
