Congratulations to ERMS Spelling Bee champs!

Sixty-two eager 6th, 7th and 8th graders completed the grueling written spelling test on Oct. 26, and 25 finalists emerged and competed in the oral spelling bee on Nov. 2. 

Top Eagle Ridge Spelling Bee participants are (from left) Milan Ysaguirre, Suad hassan, Jessie Vogler and Yana Khetiya.
