The Orange County Publishing Company’s fourth annual Spelling Bee will be held on Sunday, February 25 at 2 p.m. in the Ruth Farlow Uyesugi Auditorium. There will be 24 students from fourth grade through eighth grade representing Paoli against students from Orleans and Springs Valley. The junior high students representing our school are seventh graders Caitlyn Taylor and Cora Austin and eighth graders Arshdeep Singh and Karyas Slaten.
The face-off to see who the county’s top speller is will be an exciting event to watch.
“Several students have been studying very hard to earn a spot in this bee. They strive to move on to the national level at D.C.,” said Spell Bowl team supervisor Loretta Brown.
The top speller of the county will be moving on to compete nationally at Washington D.C. as one of 300 other spellers at the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Admission is free, so come out and cheer on our Paoli spellers as they compete to advance to our nation’s capital.
