Alice Ponder Elementary School held its annual spelling bee on December 12, 2017.
The students, sponsored by Mary Morales and Hilda Rojo, faced fierce competition, as today's event went much longer than anticipated.
Ponder's first-place winner was Dinh Luong, a fourth-grade student from Natalie Toomey's class.
Runner-up was Katelyn Castro, also a fourth-grade student from Natalie Toomey's class.
The winning word was truculently.
Congratulations to all of the participants! Ponder is proud of all of you!
