Once again, the Robert M. Finley Spelling Bee was a competitive contest composed of talented spellers..
Each speller earned the opportunity to represent their respective grade level teams and competed for a chance to represent the middle school at the regional contest at Hofstra University. Spellers included Steven Bailey, Amedea Cipriano, Alan Gansky, Cassandra Hill, Ryan Houghton, Nicole Khaimov and Axelle LaBaw. The students impressed their school and moderators throughout the competition.
Jason Flashner and Desiree Viruet served as moderators for the contest. After an hour of spelling, Steven Bailey was named the winner. Principal Nelson Iocolano congratulated all of the spellers and thanked the students who came to support their classmates.
