Grahamwood Elementary School held its 4th-5th grade Spelling Bee on Friday, January 26th. Organized by CLUE teacher Laura Wilons, there were 45 competitors with Lisa Zeigler, Sherry Coates and Peggy Woods serving as judges. The event was attended by hundreds of parents, students and stakeholders, and took 5 rounds for a winner to be declared.
This year, Ehman Sandhu in Ms. Claire Smith’s Optional 4th grade class was our winner. The winning word was “premonition”. Ehman will move on to compete in the next round in Nashville at the Tennessee Titans’ Nissan Stadium. Ehman said of his victory, “I was really surprised to win. I did not expect to get so far. I’m happy I won and now, I get to go to the regionals!”
