Fifth Grade Spelling Bee
This week, we held the most exciting competition in the history of Anaheim Hills Spelling bees. The 4th and 5th grade students gathered to watch the finalists face off in the 5th grade spelling bee. As the bee progressed, the spellers were poised; listening, asking questions and thinking through their answers carefully. After competing for 90 minutes in a record 53 rounds (37 of them between the two finalists) Sherry Xu narrowly beat out Farooq Ansari for the championship. Nima Ghodsi finished in 3rd place. The other finalists were Derick Ma, Jessica Clement, Andrew Chang, Ahnia Khansari, Shirley Liu, Keeley Deleon, Nate Steele, Donia Olia, Alex Kinsbursky, William Wang, Aarnav Sandhu, Evan Patel and Aryana Bates.
