Finley Middle School students went head-to-head in a schoolwide spelling bee on Jan. 18. Participants who were named winners of their own team’s respective bees faced off during the competition. They included students Valerie Acosta (Mr. Kocienda), Jessica Callaghan (Mr. McGahan), Amy Cruz (Ms. Durham), Logan Grech (Ms. Frisch), Elijah Roditi (Ms. Treder) and Mert Suyabatmaz (Ms. McGrath).

Congratulations to sixth-grader Mert, who was crowned winner, and Logan, who was named runner-up. Mert will take an online exam in competition for qualification for the Long Island regional at St Joseph’s College.   

A special thanks to judges and pronouncers, and teachers Jackie Burnett, Rebecca Carfora and Jason Flashner.
