Faulkner Wins! Blevens, Runner-Up!
The New Manchester Elementary Spelling Bee was held on Tuesday, January 18, in the Media Center. Third, fourth, and fifth grade students participated with class winners advancing to the school bee. Kordero Faulkner, fifth grader, is the school winner and will represent New Manchester in the Douglas County Spelling Bee on Friday, January 28, at the office of the Douglas County School System. Willie Blevens, runner-up, will also attend the county bee and will be prepared to take over in the event that Kordero is unable to compete.
Congratulations to both these students who persevered for over 10 rounds and showed themselves to be tip-top spellers!
