NSCSD students excel in spelling

Thirty-six students from North Syracuse Junior High School, Roxboro Road Middle School and Gillette Road Middle School gathered Tuesday Nov. 30 at the North Syracuse Central School District Administrative Office building to compete in a district-wide spelling bee.

The talented youth from grades five through eight were challenged with a variety of words ranging from simple spellings such as "cavity" to more difficult spellings such as "seismologist."

All students came to the competition after completing written and oral exams within their schools.

The competition ended with the correct spellings of the words "innermost" and "skillet" by Ashley Bodnar from Roxboro Road Middle School. Finishing in second place was Mallory Eymer and in third was Rachel Allen, both also from Roxboro Road Middle School.

The top six competitors (all from Roxboro Road Middle School) from the North Syracuse Central School District spelling bee will advance to The Post Standard/WCNY 2011 Spelling Bee at Christian Brothers Academy on Saturday Jan. 22.

Those finalists are:

1. Ashley Bodnar, seventh grade from Roxboro Road Middle School

2. Mallory Eymer, seventh grade from Roxboro Road Middle School

3. Rachel Allen, seventh grade from Roxboro Road Middle School

4. Joshua Moore, seventh grade from Roxboro Road Middle School

5. Zachary Coldren, sixth grade from Roxboro Road Middle School
