Elementary School Spelling Bee Results

The emergence of spring like weather is always reenergizing for the elementary. The kids are enjoying the fresh air and of course have reintroduced their shorts and t-shirts! We currently have 169 students enrolled in grades K-6. Our preschool program has 20 students. 

Mrs. Paden, our counselor, coordinated a trip to Arrowhead Stadium for students in grades 2-6 in December. They learned about the history of the Chiefs and Lamar Hunt’s role in the AFL/NFL. They had a tour of the Stadium including the locker room and were able to step on the sidelines to get a field view of the stadium. They concluded with a visit to the Sports Lab. Each class chose a restaurant in Platte City for lunch. We were all very proud of our students and their behaviors throughout the day. 

Third quarter statistics: Forty-one percent of our fifth graders were on an honor roll and 29% of our sixth graders were on an honor roll. Even though we have been hit hard with illness lately, 55% of our K-6th grade students earned attendance honors for the second quarter. All but 3 of our families attended third quarter conferences. 

Congratulations to our students for their efforts in our annual spelling bee. The winners were:
