OUR LADY OF REFUGE SCHOOL
Skool Speeling Bea, oops – School Spelling Bee
Joseph Jabro, a seventh grader from room 118, Mrs. Embree’s class, is the Our Lady of Refuge Spelling Bee school champion for the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Joseph competed against eleven other students in grades 5-8. He approached the microphone very calmly and recited each word carefully, spelling each word correctly. Joseph’s ‘winning word’ was PARLIAMENTARY. Joseph won a personal Spelling Bee trophy for himself, will have his name engraved on the school Spelling Bee Champion plaque and will now move up to the next step of the Spelling Bee at Oakland Schools on Sunday, March 17, 2013. From there Joseph may advance to the BIG Spelling Bee in Washington D.C. Let’s wish Joseph all the best and extra good luck on his exciting adventure. The runner-up speller was Clare Brinkman, also from room 118, and will receive a runner-up trophy. All participants received a Spelling Bee participation certificate.
