Mecca School Spelling Competition

Mecca School Spelling Bee
Altagracia Torres

Congratulations to Josue Hernandez (champion) and Oswaldo Sanchez (runner-up), as well as the rest of the Spelling Bee competitors, for their participation in our school's Spelling Bee event. Students proceeded to take the competition all the way to round 13. It was a nail-biting event, and all of the students were recognized for their participation. Spelling is important because it aids in reading. It helps cement the connection that is shared between sounds and letters. Learning high-frequency sight words also has been shown to help with both reading and writing.
