  1. Way To Go! to all of the kids participating!!

    This really takes me back to my childhood days when a Spelling Bee was considered “fun”. Yes, I was considered a “nerd”; and I’m proud of it. I actually attended a Motivation Program in Philly that (in its beginnings) focused strictly on academics; the school didn’t offer any sports whatsoever. The curriculum mandated students attend cultural and academic events in order to earn the required points to graduate. The results – I developed a love of the Arts, Theatre and Museums alike; as well as reading an assortment of genre.

    Spelling Bees are just the beginning of a life filled with the love of words.

    BTW…my daughter attended McKeel Academy (from 6th – 12th grades) and is currently in her junior year at college.

    McKeel Academy of Technology is AWESOME!! Go Wildcats!!!
