Fourth grade spelling team seatedPublished 10:45pm Thursday, February 9, 2012
Fourth-graders competed Thursday morning at Dowagiac Middle School Performing Arts Center for five spots on the team going to the 29th annual Cass County Spelling Bee Feb. 27 at Southwestern Michigan College.
With Supt. Mark Daniel pronouncing words and principals Heather Nash of Patrick Hamilton, Gretchen Hart of Sister Lakes and Dawn Conner of Kincheloe judging, spellers went at it through 10 rounds — four from the white list, four from the blue list and the final two after a break from the toughest red list.
While Sister Lakes and Justus Gage wore black T-shirts and Kincheloe came clad in yellow, Patrick Hamilton sported pink, which Nash said students selected.
