Submitted by the Port school–The Spelling Bee last Friday evening in the Port school was a huge success. Many people participated, including 35 elementary students from Port, 3 teens and 10 adults.
Thank you to Elizabeth and Karen Kunelius for judging the event and caller Jeff King, who had the opportunity to ask Mayor Dale Lore the spelling of protocol. A good laugh was had by the audience at this choice of spelling words.
The spellers were all very challenged by the list of words given them.
Thank you to the wonderful supports of this project, Alex Rinfret and all the volunteers and parents. Port Clements Elementary initiative to improve literacy by this unique project is appreciated by the community and parents.
