Two sixth-graders from the district were recently selected as two of only 52 students from schools across Long Island to participate in the Long Island Regional Spelling Bee at St. Joseph’s College on March 20. Maaz Rajput from Forest Road School and Marlon Clarke Jr. from Shaw Avenue School qualified for the regional competition after winning their class spelling bee, school-wide spelling bee and scoring at least a 27 on an online spelling test facilitated by the Scripps National Spelling Bee. 

The winning student from the regional competition will represent their school and Long Island in the Scripps National Spelling Bee with students from across the country in May. The district congratulates both students on this outstanding achievement and wishes them the best of luck as they move forward in the competition!
