Both DSISD middle schools recently determined the champions of their Scripps spelling bees. Grover Bendall (left) of Dripping Springs Middle School and Susan Nestlerode (pictured below left with runner-up Ella Fallon) of Sycamore Springs Middle School were the winners. Second and third place at DSMS were McKinzey Cleveland and Casey Daniels. Grover and Susan have now advanced to the next round which consists of an online test in February. The top 100 spellers will then qualify for the Regional Bee to be held in March in Austin.
[Click and drag to move] Unrelated to the Scripps bee, the DSISD Council of PTAs has scheduled a “Town Bee” for Feb. 13 for all the DSISD schools (four elementary school and two middle schools). This award will determine the overall DS Spelling Bee Champion.
