Reading teacher Ms. Kristina Carlstrom and fourth-grade teacher Ms. Melissa Harechmak organized the bee and helped to prepare the students for the schoolwide assembly. Phoebe, along with the top two spellers in each of the fifth-grade classes, participated. Principal Benjamin Roberts served as the moderator, while Mrs. Monica Altamirano, Mrs. Margaret Clark, Ms. Karen Serani and Mrs. Jamie Sharfman helped judge the event. Phoebe won by spelling the word “bulletin” correctly. Fifth-grader Jordan Billings was runner-up.

Mr. Roberts congratulated Phoebe along with the other contestants, Tyler Bartolomeo-Michie, Jordan Billings, Kaelyn Bonilla, Julian Landaverde, Mia Mejia, Jalyin Neder, Arianna Romeo, Cole Sciacca and Nehemiah Toutoute.
