Ferguson-Florissant, there’s a new champ in town.

Jadzia won first place in the district-wide spelling bee!

It wasn’t easy. We made Jadzia do a lot of work. Jadzia is a goal-setter and she long wanted to achieve this goal, but let’s face it: doing work is not fun. There were many arguments.

But ultimately, her preparation paid off.

UPDATE (March 9, 2016): Jadzia was recognized as the Ferguson-Florissant School District spelling champ at tonight’s Board of Education meeting!

UPDATE (March 30, 2016): Jadzia was featured in this month’s issue of the Ferguson Times (along with the Viper Bots)!

The April 2016 issue of the Ferguson Times had brief items about the Viper Bots and about Jadzia's spelling bee victory.
