SPELLING BEE FINALIST: 44 of Bret Harte’s best spellers rolled through nearly 250 words until 6th Grader Medha Nemani was crowned our 2018 Champion!
Her winning word was Enorganic (yes with an E; it means arising within or inherent in the organism—I’d never heard of it either).  Finishing tied for second were 8th graders Nethra Srinivasan and Aadi Tabada.  And MANY others showed confidence, discipline, memory, and logic in spelling words they had never had to spell in their lives!
Medha will compete on February 10th in the Bay Area Spelling Semifinals vs. 250 other Bay Area winners in a written test.  The top 50 from that semifinal return in March for a stand-up Bee and a shot at the national spelling bee.

REMINDER:  Bronco Night is TONIGHT 7:00 - 9:00 PM! Don’t forget to bring your ID and SIGNED dance ticket! NO EXCEPTIONS.

Kindness Challenge- We are excited to be part of a nationwide Kindness Challenge.  It will start next week and your teachers will give you more information closer to the time of the event.  Think of ways you can personally be more kind and compassionate toward others.  We hope you will all participate, as there will be prizes for the winners.  Make a difference in your world and YOUR SCHOOL!!
