On March 14th, Sage will represent NewBrook School at the Vermont Scripps Spelling Bee Competition. She will compete with about 40 other students from around the state. This is a spell down competition which is different than the team competition that she participated in earlier this year.
In the fall, Sage's great spelling helped us win the District, Regional and State Championship! She loves to spell........she usually selects 25 to 30 words a week! We are very proud of Sage's accomplishments and willingness to represent our school in such a difficult competition. Sage is the third student to have the honor of representing our school in this spelling bee.
The spelling bee is sponsored by the VT Dept of Ed, Vt Principals' Association, VT Humanities Council and the Burlington Free Press. It will be held at St. Michael's College in Colchester. The
champion of the bee will travel to Washington, DC., in June to participate in the Scripps National Spelling Bee, competing against top spellers from every state in the nation.
Good Luck, Sage!!!!!
