The Las Animas District Spelling Bee Winners were Serah Dean and Daniel Huston

This year the spelling was done differently due to COVID; usually we took the top 3 spellers from the Elementary and the top 3 from the Jr High to a District Spelling Bee that was hosted by the Lion’s Club. McClave schools would also attend then the top speller from there could continue on to state.  Due to COVID we did not have a district bee this year, instead we put our top 6 spellers together to get the top speller who is now eligible to compete in the state spelling bee.  That will also look different as it will be virtual on March 13.  I can let you know more as we get the information from them.  This is a Unique opportunity for our spellers to be able to compete at state level without having to travel to Denver which is sometimes hard for our students & families to do.  Here is a picture of the top 6 spellers from our schools.
