And the winning word was.....chloroform!
On January 9, 23 seventh and eighth grade students participated in the annual Owen J. Roberts Middle School Spelling Bee. It was an epic competition that went twenty rounds before our champion, seventh grade student, Saachi Chakravarty, of Blue Team, claimed her victory with the word chloroform. We congratulate Saachi on her win and wish her luck as she moves on to the Chester County Spelling Bee on February 13. All of the students who participated did an outstanding job as spellers. The most impressive part of the night, though, according to Mrs. Katie Dede, spelling bee advisor, was the support and encouragement that the participants provided to one another. "Great job, everyone!"
