Middle School Students Excel at State and National Levels

Congratulations to Sophie Walton for the outstanding job she did competing at the state spelling bee over break. She made it through to the 8th round where she went out on the word bobadil. Sophie ended up in 23rd place which is quite an accomplishment competing with top spellers from the entire state of Wisconsin.

Congratulations also to Emerson Ellenwood. Emerson recently had a reflective letter that he wrote to his favorite author in the national Letters about Literature competition chosen to go on to the next level of competition. His letter to Veronica Roth, regarding her book Divergent, was one of 58 chosen from over 700 entries that were received from the state of Wisconsin alone. The top three letters and authors will be chosen from the 58 and they will receive special awards in a ceremony to be held in Green Bay on April 21.

Kudos also to the following members of the 7-8 Math team that competed in the WI Mathematics Council Contest. These members received special recognition for their high individual scores: Andrew Rollette, Brock Grosinske, Emma Clarksen, Samantha McKelvey, and Max Hsu.

Reese Brantmeier competed in a super-national Easter Bowl tennis tournament in Palm Springs, California. 128 tennis players competed in the event and Reese came in third place winning the bronze trophy.

The exceptional achievements of each of these students make us very proud and sets the bar high for our school and community. Go Whitewater!
