How do you spell fantastic?

S-A-D-I-E!!

Congratulations to our own local super speller, 7th grader, Sadie R.

Sadie qualified for the 2014 Minnesota Seven County Metro Area Regional Spelling Bee. There are only 45 school champions from the entire metro area who qualified based on results from a challenging online exam.

Sadie scored a perfect score on the spelling portion of the exam by correctly spelling words including: azure, blitzkrieg, carnivore, gynarchy, maladroit, and oratorio.  Examples of vocabulary words that Sadie was able to define correctly included: aggregate, barrio, meticulous, pacifism and hedonism.

The 2014 Minnesota Seven County Metro Area Regional Spelling Bee will be held on Saturday, March 15 at Augsburg College.  The champion of this Bee and one parent will win an expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., to compete in the 2014 Scripps National Spelling Bee.

Congratulations Sadie!
