Dear HRA Families and Friends,
HRA had its annual School Spelling Bee last Friday, February 13th. It was the most competitive field I have observed in my 12 and a half years at HRA! After approximately 80 minutes of competition and 16 rounds, fifth grader, Jonas Knox reigned victorious. I was challenged to the end by the runner-up and alternate for the State Spelling Bee, sixth grader, Grace Woyte. I was astounded that the first and second graders were still in the competition after several rounds. Cameron Dixon, second grade, remained in the competition through the 12th round. Bravo, Cameron!
Jonas Knox and Grace Woyte will be attending the State Spelling Bee on March 5th at the Performing Arts Center. We wish you the very best in your efforts to go to Washington D.C. this year, Jonas!
Miss Catherine Neumayr, Principal
