The Seth Boyden Spelling Bee was a major success! After 14 intense rounds of spelling, Martin Gehrke (LaForest/McCarl) and Melanie Fisher (Pei) emerged as winners! Martin’s final word to seal his victory was sanitized while Melanie’s was campaign. Huge congratulations to Martin, Melanie, and the 22 other class champions that participated!

Be sure to root for our Seth Boyden champions at the Essex County Spelling Bee which will be on March 7 at 11:00 am at Kipp Life Academy in Newark. Our school bee was funded by the PTA and sponsored by Sidelines and Stages Foundation, whose president, Coobee Darcelin, is a Seth Boyden alum. A big thank you to Mr. Hein for coordinating this and getting so many kids excited about spelling!
