Bowling Green’s Terrific Spellers
Fifth-grade students at Bowling Green Elementary School participated in their annual spelling bee in December 2011.
Each fifth-grade class sent two class champions to the school contest. The competition, under the direction of reading teachers Ellen Kelter and Jennie Re, was fierce as the students competed for the title of “Grade Five Spelling Bee Champion.”
Bowling Green’s runner-up was Matthew Percoco, with Ahmed Rauf taking the title of champion. Ahmed will continue on to the next level of competition, the Long Island Semifinals of the Scripps Howard News Service Spelling Bee.
Congratulations to all of the participants in this year’s contest.
