1st, 2nd & 3rd place winnersOn Thursday, January 10th, East Central held its annual Spelling Bee. 24 students from grades five to eight participated. After four rounds, there were only four students remaining. The spelling bee went another 35 rounds to determine the winner. 

Mrs. Chryst & the winnerIn fourth place was eighth grader Jeff Leonard, third place was fifth grader Teddy Shervheim, second place was seventh grader Brooklyn Loew and the winner was seventh grader Payton Marshall. Payton will represent East Central at the Regional Spelling Bee on Tuesday, February 5th, in Sartell.

Ironically, the word that Payton won with was "verbomania." This word means "excessive use of or obsession with words."
