Dayton Avenue elementary and Eastport elementary schools each held their annual spelling bees. Students first took a spelling test, and the top scorers competed one-on-one for several excruciating rounds before the winner and runner-up were announced.
Congratulations goes to Dayton Avenue Elementary School sixth grader Isabella Fiordalisi who won the spelling bee held for students in grades 4-6. Sugey Rubio was the runner-up in the competition. Additionally, Enzo Pastor was the winner of the third grade spelling bee with Nathan Franco placing second.
At Eastport Elementary School, Emily Hershey was the winner of the schoolwide spelling bee. Kaylee Nicoletti was the runner-up.
The school winners will now advance to the Long Island Regional Scripps Spelling Bee, to be held at Hofstra University on Feb. 11 where they will compete to represent the district and the region at the 2023 Scripps National Spelling Bee, held in the spring.
The District congratulates the students on this outstanding accomplishment and extends best wishes for success in the Long Island Regional Scripps Spelling Bee.
