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.
