Aplington Middle School's spelling bee was a low-key event this year compared to years past because rather than an oral bee, the school utilized an online bee developed by Scripps. Each of the five participants tested individually by listening to words generated by the online program. Individuals were presented with ten words from the published study list and five off-list words, meaning students had had no formal opportunity to study the words. Participants then typed the words into the computerized system. The online test resulted in a tie between eighth graders Gage Zeigler and Bailey Kibodeaux, who then competed in an oral tiebreaker round. Gage emerged as the winner and will represent Aplington at the regional bee in February. Bailey is the runner-up. Kudos to both students for a fine performance!
Our students love the HUGE snow pile.
With the donations from the different grades and teachers, the Polo High School Student Council donated $800 to the Polo Lifeline Food Pantry!
