Academy Street Elementary School recently hosted their annual Scripps Spelling Bee Competition, bringing together the fourth- and fifth-grade student champions from their respective classrooms for a morning of fun and friendly competition. By the end of the competition, fifth-grade student Julia McCormick claimed victory by successfully spelling the word “lustrous.” 

With Julia’s win secured, she will move onto the next round, which consists of an online test to be administered before Feb. 6. The results of the online test will become available on Feb. 12, and will ultimately determine if Julia moves on to the regional bee at St. Joseph’s College on March 20.

Second place went to fifth-grader Morgan Hughes, while fourth-grade student Emme Maiorano secured the third-place title.
