The annual schoolwide spelling bee took place recently at Wellington Elementary School. Classrooms held spelling bees and sent their top spelling finalists to the competition. It was sponsored by the WES Reading and Literacy Committee and was televised. Shown above are the top three winners: Nicole Jakimowitz in first place, Daria Sololova in second place and Jazmin Muniz in third place. Below are the fourth and fifth grade finalists at the spelling bee.
