This past November, PS229 held its Annual 5th Grade Spelling Bee in the auditorium! Each 5th grade class held their own spelling bee in their classrooms, and the top 2 spellers from each class then competed against each other for the top 3 spellers for the grade, with Technology teacher Ms. Roswell officiating the Bee. The top 2 spellers from each class are pictured in the large group photos on the stage, along with the Administration. Congratulations to our top 3 spellers - Stephen Cody, Class 5-1, Naqib Chowdhury, Class 5-3 and Noorhan Hamid, Class 5-3! Our top 3 spellers went on to compete against over 150 top spellers from other schools in Queens this past January. Congratulations to all!
Spellers in action!
