  • Congratulations to the STMA Middle School Spelling Bee finalists and district champion Ava Marquette. Twenty one spellers participated in the competition last night from both Middle School East and West. Four spellers reached the 12th round of the bee and therefore will represent STMA in the regional bee on February 5th. The final four spellers were Middle School East students Nic Casperson, Caitlyn Seaver, Audrey Kanu and 2019 champion Ava Marquette. Ava correctly spelled the word “portentously” in the 12th round and went on to spell “amethyst” as her challenge word to clinch the title as STMA Middle School District Spelling Bee Champion. Congratulations to all 21 spellers from East and West and good luck to the final four at the regional competition.
