We won the Concept Spelling Bee Again

Jazzimyne Hill, a 5th grader at IMSA North, competed in the Bee for the first time.  Jazzimyne lasted 3 rounds and was defeated when she misspelled the word “jostle.”  Defending champion  of the 2016 Elementary Spelling  Division, Eric Mwasinga did an awesome job in the bee by spelling challenging words such as:  “deluge” and “linguist.”  Eric lasted 6 rounds and was defeated when he misspelled the word “receivable.”

Victory Sampson, another participant in last year’s contest, came with victory in mind!  Victory won the 2017 Middle school title with ease. Victory lasted 17 rounds by correctly spelling word such as “amaryllis,” “languorous,”   and the winning word “dysfunctional,”  We are very proud of the Spelling Bee Club members and most importantly, we are proud of Jazzimyne, Eric, and Victory for earning their way to the Bee and helping us continue to reign as Concept’s Overall Best Performing School!  Thank you to all  of the parents, students, and staff who supported and rooted for our team as we traveled to Chicago to defend our title!  We came, we saw, we conquered!
