We wrapped up another successful Spelling Bee at Saint Francis Xavier School.  Many thanks to second grade teacher, Sue Catozzi, for organizing this fun, tradition-rich event.  Approximately 75 students participated in the sessions which were divided by grade.  The participants clearly put a great deal of effort in to practicing their spelling.  

A shout out to Mrs. Kathleen Finn for giving of her time to act as a judge for the Spelling Bee and offering the library as our venue.  We were also excited to have Mrs. Janet Walsh (grandmother to Bridget and Molly Walsh) act as judge.  Not only is Mrs. Walsh a tireless library volunteer, she is a former spelling bee champion.  When Mrs. Walsh was in sixth grade, she won the Indiana State Spelling Bee!  
Finally, thank you to the Home & School Association for underwriting the Barnes & Noble gift cards that our first and second place winners took home today.
