Chesterfield Day School held their school wide K-6 Spelling Bee on Wednesday, Jan. 24. Nineteen participants demonstrated not only their ability to spell challenging words, but also their perseverance as they spelled their way through eleven rounds resulting in a winner. Fifth-grader Grant Klasing came out as top speller followed by fourth-grader Kennedy Ituen who placed second.
Klasing will represent Chesterfield Day at the local St. Louis Post-Dispatch Regional Spelling Bee at McKendree University in March. Seventeen other participants shined as they attempted to spell their way to victory. Those students include Athreya Arvind, Lucy Black, Max Black, Kieran Creeth, Deven Creeth, Zoe Dickherber, Wyatt Eggers, Veronica Galiano, Allison Honold, Woobin Joo, Mary Laws, Sawyer Mandell, Grace Rollo, Aiden Scherer, Liam Watson, Sean Widel and Finley Wilkins.
