Kohler seventh grader advances to regional spelling bee
Submitted by Ann Bitter, Kohler 5th Grade Teacher
On Monday, January 14, 18 students representing each classroom or advisory section from grades 3-8 participated in the Kohler School Spelling Bee. The bee took place after school in the Kohler School cafeteria and had many spectators. This school bee saw such great competition with excellent spellers that it lasted a whopping 80 minutes! In the end, it came down to the final two participants, George Phillips and Pranav Thamballapalle, both representing the 7th grade, going head to head for several rounds before George was declared the champion. He will participate in the Regional Spelling Bee on Monday, January 21 at Acuity in Sheboygan. Best of luck, George!
