BFS 1st-8th graders did a great job representing our school at the SKAC spelling bee held at Kwangju Foreign School on November 29, 2016.
We departed BFS at 5:30 in the morning. When we arrived at KFS after our long bus ride, our students studied their words while we waited for the other schools to arrive.
All of our students put forth their best efforts. Marco Carmona in 2nd grade was one of the final three spellers for second grade. All of our students made it past their grade level word lists and on to the secret word list. Michelle Moon in 7th grade and Amy Jung in 8th grade were both the grade level winners. The 8th grade bee went on for 29 rounds!
Ms. Wesen, Ms. Potter, and Mrs. Dysart are all so proud of all the participants!
Thanks also to Mrs. Harvey and all the parents that drove all the way to Gwangju to support our BFS students!
