Students in 4th and 5th grade have been busy studying their spelling words in anticipation of Elementary South’s  annual spelling bee.  Competition was held in each of the 4th and 5th grade homerooms, with the 1st and 2nd place finishers in each homeroom advancing to the finals round on Thursday, January 16th.  Congratulations to Varun in Mrs. Dahm’s 4th grade class for being the 1st runner up in the competition.  We are very pleased to announce our 2013-14 Spelling Bee Winner is Emma from Mrs. Dahm’s class.  She will continue on to the regional competition to be held in Deerfield.  Good luck Emma!
