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.
