Spelling Finalist Reaches County Top 10

IMG_0263
This year's Middle Grades County Spelling Bee lasted 16 rounds, the winners will be moving on to the Orlando Sentinel Spelling Bee on March 26, 2014.

Stone's representative, Tena Gordon had to spell dodecahedron for her first word. She did real well, making it all the way through to the 10 round when she was given the word sortie, which is a word unfamiliar to middle school students unless they read military history novels Happy

eating meals together
traveling or vacations
visiting other family members
simply spending time together

What does “Being There” with your family really mean to you?
