This year’s spelling bee included, in fourth grade, Gabriella Lombardi and Lauren Quattromani. In grade five, Joshua Greenberg and Ava Viera. Grade six included Peter LeBeau and Dante Andreozzi. Grade seven was Chris Coughlin and Emily Wright. Eighth grade participants consisted of Joseph Weidinger and Andrew Reyes.  The final three were Dante Andreozzi, Chris Coughlin, and Peter LeBeau. Dante came in third place.  Chris came in second place. Peter won with the word ballerina. Peter and Chris will be going on to the Catholic school regionals and Dante is an alternate.  Grades 1 through 8 were a great audience. It takes a lot of courage to get up on stage, and all of the participants did a great job.
