Top spellers at Sequoia Elementary have more to be happy about than just good grades.
As part of an ongoing community partnership with S.W. Hackett Lodge No. 574, the top 10 spellers in grades 4-6 were invited to compete in the annual spelling bee at the S.W. Hackett Lodge. The Lodge’s Junior Warden passed out cash prizes to the first, second and third place finishers in the amounts of $75, $50 and $25, respectively.
Lodge No. 574 has hosted the event for more than 10 years, instilling in students the lesson that hard work and dedication to one’s studies can pay off.
The 2013 Sequoia Elementary Annual Spelling Bee winners are:
Fourth grade: First place - BJ Lama Second place – AJ Lama, Third place – Manuel Garcia
Fifth grade: First place – Travis Lee Second place – Vikash Kalyani SankaraRamen, Third place – Orlena Morris
