Congratulations to our Spelling Bee winner JD Brain (gr. 4) and runner up Brock Smith (gr. 4) who competed with 26 other Damascus students in the annual Damascus Spelling Bee.
Mrs. Arlene Roelen organized the event this year with the help of judges, Connie Willis, Lydia Wilmoth, and Theresa Burch. Retired teacher Mrs. Eleanor Carver was the Pronouncer for the Spelling Bee.
Before the final round the two boys were seated beside one another. Without being asked they wished each other well and shook hands. We are very proud of all the students and happy to see the respect they share for each other.
