Magnolia Students Participate in Annual Spelling Bee

The spelling skills of the student contestants were undoubtedly impressive:  during 18 rounds, students tackled words such as “gorgeous,” “ridiculous,” and “diagnosis.”  Maegan Diente, a sixth-grade student from Juliette Low, earned First Place; Anthony Chuong, a fifth-grade student from Robert M. Pyles Stem Academy, earned Second Place; and Simon Nguyen, a sixth-grade student from Juliette Low, received Third Place.  Since Maegan and Simon are the two top sixth grade students, they will represent the Magnolia School District at the upcoming Orange County Spelling Bee on February 26.   Winners will also be honored at an upcoming School Board meeting.
