spelling bee
On January 19th, Hawthorn Middle School South held it’s annual Spelling Bee.  The bee included 29 students (one absentee) representing 30 Language Arts classes in the school. Entering the tenth round, only two students remained: sixth grader Sahiti G. and seventh grader Chloe B. Some of the words in the final few rounds included: putrefaction, gauss, caravel, expatiated, formaldehyde, enorganic, nebulosity, indolent, xylorimba, and tamara.
In the eleventh round, Sahiti G. correctly spelled the championship word and became the 2018 School Spelling Bee Champion.  She will be moving on to the Sectional Spelling Bee to represent Middle School South.
