Berean Students Compete in School Spelling Bee

Updated: Feb 2

Students in the 3rd - 8th grades participated in the Berean Spelling Bees held yesterday, December 3. Each speller did a great job! We want to thank our judges, Alex Krestan, Lenora Wiebe, and Cindy Matzek, for overseeing both spelling bees.


Garrett Friesen won the 3rd-4th grade spelling bee, and Gabe Dennett took second place. An exciting spell-off between three students was needed to determine the 4th place winner.

The 5-8th grade had a great competition with some extremely challenging words. Leah Entz won the spelling bee, and Ivy Busenitz took second place. Finding the third-place winner resulted in a spell-off with five students, but time ran out before a winner could be determined, so all five students shared the 3rd place win!
