Connolly fifth-grader Noah Kopetic competed in the Hofstra Long Island Regional Scripps Spelling Bee on March 13.
Noah successfully made it through the first round against 132 participants from all over Nassau and Suffolk counties. All participants were given a written vocabulary test prior to taking the stage, and although Noah spelled his word correctly, he didn’t score highly enough against the older children to advance.
Principal Rosemarie Sekelsky congratulated Noah on his outstanding effort.
