Twenty-nine students in grades 3-8 from DCSS elementary and middle schools competed. The Spelling Bee went more than 20 rounds, and the winning word was "arachnid." The first and second place winners will participate in the Georgia Association of Educators District 4 Spelling Bee on February 25 at the DeKalb County Board of Education Complex. 

We appreciate the DCAE for sponsoring this event and the CCI and Ms. Whitney Forsch for providing the sign. Thank you also to Donniel Lewis, 9th grade student at the CCI, for the artwork on the sign.
