    On the first Friday back from break, some Nemaha Central Elementary and Middle School 5th through 8th-grade students participated in the school-wide spelling bee held on January 4. Each grade from 5th through 8th grade held a class spelling bee to determine who would advance to the school spelling bee. Only 3 students from each grade advanced making it a total of 12 students competing in the school-wide spelling bee. The 5th graders were Kathryn Yunghans, Koree Stuke, and Kadence Henry. The 6th graders were Claire Kaster, Kaden Peterson, and Alayna Scism. The 7th graders were Kylee Sperfslage, Alyssa Frye, and Dalton Childress. And finally, the 8th graders were Kace Kramer, Gracyn Lierz, and Isaac Lueger.         

    “It was nerve-racking to spell the words in front of the other students,” said Kaden Peterson.

    The adults helping with the spelling bee this year were Mrs. Laurie Stallbaumer, Mrs. Angie Bass, and Mrs. Deb Kramer. After Mrs. Bass had announced the rules to the contestants, a practice round was held. After the practice round was finished, the real spelling bee began. After several rounds of intense spelling, only 3 contestants remained Kramer, Sperfslage, and Frye. After 1 more round, it was down to Sperfslage and Frye. After spelling a few words correctly, Frye misspelled her word and this gave Sperfslage an opportunity to win. After Sperfslage spelled her word correctly all she had to do was spell 1 more word correctly to win it all. With correctly spelling garret, she won the school spelling bee. The top 7 finishers will advance to the county spelling bee on January 19 at the Nemaha County courthouse.

    “It was fun getting to learn how to spell new words,” said Kylee Sperfslage.

    Good luck to all the participants continuing on to the county spelling bee!
