Winners for 2011 Spelling Bees

Over the past two weeks, 260 Newton school children have participated in the 4th annual All Newton Spelling Bees. The children were often asked to spell words that were higher than their grade level! They should all be commended for the tremendous poise they showed, and courage for getting on a stage and spelling a difficult word in front of an
audience. Congratulations to all the participants! The following is the list of winners:
