To bee or not to bee? That certainly was the question at Jesuit Academy as 66 students competed for a spot in annual team spelling bee competition, held in the school commons area. Two students from each homeroom were chosen to represent their class. From there, students were broken up into two teams and spelled approximately 40 words. Although everyone was truly a winner, the team consisting of Jordan Skipper, T.J. Griffin, Daevier Kellogg,
William Worthington and Chris Coleman earned the most points and spelled the most words correct. In addition, seventh grader William Worthington was the overall individual winner.
The school, located at 2311 North 22nd Street in the old Butler-Gast YMCA building, provides a Christian education for young men in grades four through eight who aspire to build strong character and earn a college degree. Founded in 1996 and sponsored by the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), this private, independent Catholic school provides a unique, personal learning environment for young men in the community. Applications for the 2013-2014 are currently being accepted! Please contact Tony Connelly at (402) 346-4464 for enrollment information.
