Words were delivered to them by fifth- grade teacher and official pro- nouncer, Ms. Casalnuovo. In an inspiring and sus- penseful contest, students were asked to spell their words one at a time with strict males about not changing letters once they had been spoken. The contest rules also called for immediate elimination, so the pressure was on to perform. As the contest progressed, stu- dents were slowly eliminated one by one, until it came, down to fifth-grader Rachel Kelly and sixth-grader Jennifer Mathes. Eventually, after an impressive run; Rachel was tripped up by her word and Jennifer emerged the overall winner. Jennifer will go on to com- pete in the regional competi- tion in Redding March 27. If she wins there, she will win an all-expense-paid trip to Wash- ington, D.C., to compete in the national competition. If for some reason Jennifer cannot participate, runner-up Rachel Kelly will go as her alternate. Love HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
