Twenty-six Flatirons students participated in the Spelling Bee in December. The 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade participants kept their classmates and parents on the edges of their seats as they spelled word after word. Tess DeFilippi was the final speller standing and Saberi Vermeer came in second place. Saberi will represent Flatirons at the district bee in February. Nice job, participants, and good luck, Saberi!
Thirteen 4th and 5th graders chose to test their knowledge of geography in the Geo Bee right after winter break. All answered with confidence in the first five rounds. The excitement grew as the top seven students were given questions that spanned the globe. Peter Muschinski was the final student standing and Emerson McClary came in second place. Peter has taken a written test to see if he will qualify for the state Geo Bee. Great job everyone!
