On Thursday, January 14, Villa Maria Academy held the final round of the Spelling Bee. Fifth grader, Jordi D. was the spelling champion, after correctly spelling “constellation” in the final round of the school spelling bee. Jordi will now represent VMA in the Chester County Spelling Bee held at the Chester County Intermediate Unit on February 8th.
The Villa Maria Academy Spelling Bee was held for Grades 5-8. There were 22 participants – a tie in 6th and 7th grade brought the count to 6 contestants each and the 5th and 8th grades had 5 contestants each. Two 5th grade contestants, Jordi D. and Makenna W. were the last competitors in the January 14th final round. Both girls were very well prepared. We are so proud of these girls and all the girls for their dedication and effort.
