Rocket Report

Vol. 4, No. 14, November 13th
Words with Wilson
For the 8th time in school history, our Junior Spell Bowl team won a State Title. The teams are broken into different classes based on school size, and I am happy to report that our score was good enough to win 3 out of the 4 classes!

Mrs. Mary Ann Chamberlin has been at the helm of our Junior Spell Bowl Team for many years. Her hard work and dedication is unmatched by any coach in the state. She pushes her spellers to always do their personal best, and they always rise to the occasion. They have been working very hard since early August, and their hard work has paid off.

Members of the team include Annabelle Snyder, Sawyer Borders, Simon Alba, Nicholas Bastida, Landon Ambrosia Robinson, Collin Ash, Hayden Bauman, Lucas Sigler and Kendall Kocher. The Rockets are coached by Mrs. Mary Ann Chamberlin and Mrs. Nicole Snyder.

Way to go, Rocket Spellers! We are very proud of you.

Have a great weekend!
