Citywide Spelling Bee Results

The annual Daily News Citywide Spelling Bee took place on March 20th. Public and private school students ranging from 5th - 8th grade who were winners of their borough spelling bees participated in the event. This was the first year a PS11 student made it to the citywide bee. We want to congratulate our 5th grader Victor for placing 18th in the event. He did a terrific job!
