Highlands Elementary held their school spelling bee. Eleven students from third through fifth grade participated. These students did a wonderful job as is evidenced by the fact that this bee went through the highest number of rounds Highlands has ever had!
     Fifth grader Scarlett Kenward won in the fifteenth round with the word, "Engraved." Her runner up was third grader Levi Gray and third place was taken by fourth grader Payton Butler.
 We are so proud of all of them!
