Thirteen students participated in the bee which continued for 25 rounds. Although students were given spelling lists of words to study months ago, some words were new to the students. Do you know the meaning of nebulosity, lugubrious, crepuscular, or tenebrific? Would you be able to spell them? Congratulations to all participants and winners.

For Mrs. Betts’ English classes 2nd term, students were to read an historical novel.  They also wrote a five-paragraph essay on the books of their choice and then created these amazing “book jackets.”  Each jacket highlights their books in creative use of excerpts, fabric, glitter, ribbon, buttons, and other trims making each “jacket” as unique as the books they read!  Students hung their “jackets” across the room for everyone to enjoy.
