Congrats to all of of our Participants!
The Thoreau Spelling Bee took place on February 8. We had 14 brave and amazing students participate. The Bee started with words such as "shelter" and "clutch" and quickly moved to words such as "swankiest, transept and derrick". After 16 rounds we had a winner, with the championship word being "slurve". Our winner is 7th grader Clara Yin, the 1st runner up is Hitansh Jani, 8th grade, and our 2nd runner up is Madeleine Wai, 7th grade. Clara will represent Thoreau at the Fairfax County Bee in March. Congrats to all of the spellers on a job well done!
