Two Island School students represented us at the District Spelling Bee last week at Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School. Eighth grader Alexa Lauren, (at left) our top speller, came in 3rd place behind two eighth grade students from Kapa‘a. Alexa misspelled allegedly she spelled it alledgedly. Our 2nd place speller, 6th grader Julia Barzilai (below) lasted through three rounds and missed threshold, she spelled it threashold. Both of them can be proud of their performance!
The winner was our former student Kahana Heen, representing Kapa‘a.
