Chalk Talk – January 18, 2013

Students learn through listening  Chelsea Bovara’s 4th grade class is currently learning about different important people in history. People in the community and other teachers and Myer School staff volunteer to come in and read to the class. Here, Maria Andruszka, teacher’s aide, reads to the students about Paul Revere.

General Myer Elementary School

On Jan. 4, General Myer Elementary School hosted a school-wide spelling bee. There were 15 participants representing 3 – 5th grades. They were given more than 140 words to spell.

The winner, fourth grader Ryan Russell Gonzalez, is in Ms. Aker’s class. The runner-up is also a fourth grader, John Byrd, in Mrs. Bovara’s class.

Students were given the lists from the school, the county and the National Spelling Bee to prepare for the school-wide event.

On Feb. 9, Ryan will represent Myer School in the Cochise County Spelling Bee. If for some reason he is unable to attend, the runner-up, John Byrd, will take his place. The school staff and students congratulate both for an outstanding job.
