Connolly’s Amedea Cipriano was the winner of the school’s fifth-grade Spelling Bee on Jan. 8.

The event was organized by teachers Nancy Cox and Dora Ricciardi and featured 10 students vying for the title of champion. According to Cox, this year’s competition was truly thrilling.

“It was one of our most exciting bees,” Cox said. “The last two students were going back and forth for several rounds before we had a winner.”
