The Bees - 2014/2015!
On Friday, October 24th, twenty-six students participated in the annual spelling bee. In addition to learning to spell hundreds of new words, this year the students faced the added challenge of defining words in a vocabulary round. Congratulations to all the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade participants! Allie, a 4th grader, was the last speller standing, and 5th graders Annika and Sophie tied for second place. The district spelling bee will take place on February 7th, 2014. More photos can be found on at https://sites.google.com/a/bvsd.org/flatirons-enrichment/.
Twenty-four 4th and 5th graders tested their knowledge of geography in the Geo Bee on Friday, December 12th. The audience of classmates and parents listened carefully as students answered question after question. Christian Rosse was the final student standing and Grace Hurst came in second place. Christian will take a written test to see if he will qualify for the state Geo Bee. Every participant did a great job!
