Homework for Friday, January 20th, 2017
While the rest of America was busy watching the inauguration of President Trump, the students of Hollis Upper Elementary were watching a, dare I say, equally momentous occasion ...
the STAFF SPELLING BEE!
I am happy to report that with the help of the class, I walked up onto that stage feeling nervous but prepared. Round after round, word after word, it was a blur - but in the end there were only five!
Mrs. Nickerson pulled out all the stops and bombarded us with some very difficult words. When the dust had settled there was a four way tie for second place - but only one teacher left standing!
Congratulations to Ms. Hansen for winning the 2017 HUES Spelling Bee!
Having never made it out of the second round before, I'm proud to be sharing second place with Mrs. White, Mr. Vetack, and Mrs. Anderson - three people who are always in the finals!
That said, here's the homework for this weekend ...
6th grade educator, history aficionado, tech & pop-culture nerd, proud husband and father!
