Congratulations to our 5th, 6th and 7th grade Spelling Bee teams!
Saturday, February 1st, our student teams and individual speller Dennis Choi represented Regents Academy very well at the Lufkin Kiwanis District Spelling Bee held at Lufkin High School.
The 5th grade team led by Will Baker (captain) and including Davin Garza and Servet Satir placed second in the K-5th division among 14 competing teams. The 6th grade team of Emma Rasberry and Jericho Maness, under the leadership of Armaan Rajani, placed second in the 6th-8th grade division, losing only to our 7th grade team of Abel Ketchen, Jean Choi and Ella Furniss (captain), who won first place in their division. All three teams came home with two-foot trophies and medallions. Regents Academy school spelling champ Dennis Choi did a great job among stiff competition in the individual bee, placing in the top five.
We are very proud of all of these spellers and all of the class teams who represented Regents Academy at the District Spelling Bee. Congratulations!
