Knights of Columbus Spelling Bee

The 2018 Knights of Columbus Spelling Bee will be held at Aviston Elementary on Friday, March 9!

The Michael J. Haukap Knights of Columbus Council held the 2017 Spelling Bee at Aviston Elementary in February. Over 100 students in grades 5-8 participated. The initial round was held in the students’ homerooms, with the finals held in the gym for the final 36 students. Thanks to Dr. Kampwerth for being the moderator and to Mrs. Buscher, Mrs. Toeben, & Mrs. Becker for being official judges. 8th grader, Ben Frohn, won third place, while 6th grader John Koerkenmeier earned 2nd, and Cohen Wiegers, also a 6th grader, won the bee!
Cohen, John, & Ben qualified to attend the Knights of Columbus Regional Spelling Bee held at Aviston Elementary March 18.
Thanks again to the Aviston Knights of Columbus for providing this opportunity for our students!
