Moderating the grade-level-appropriate contest were fourth grade teacher Mary Meehan and fifth grade teacher Trisha Voelliger.
The best spellers from each grade level of Dresden Dragons from first through eighth (seven girls and one boy) were chosen to compete against each other during a special all-school assembly. Each competitor at the bee on Thursday received a bright green ‘Dragons Lair’ ball cap and a medal. Bailey also received a first place trophy and a Scrabble game.
