Spelling Bee

     On January 12, 2012, Westwood Middle School held its first annual Spelling Bee in the Westwood cafeteria. Twenty-five sixth, seventh, and eighth graders were invited to participate after winning first or second place in their classroom spelling bees. A seventh grader in Ms. Wright's English class became the school-wide champion with the word "sinus". A sixth grader from Mrs. Rising's English class was the runner-up. The winner will be eligible to participate in the local spelling bee which will be held on February 25. If the winner is unable to participate, the runner-up will take her place.
