What's New and news
A final update about our two contestants at the Japan Times Spelling Bee this past Saturday, March 4th. Takeshi Yamaguchi in Grade 8, our Junior High Rep, was the RUNNER-UP at the Spelling Bee this year! He almost, almost made it to Washington, DC, USA to represent Japan! An amazing accomplishment & the furthest any of our spellers have ever gone in the competition. 35 other spellers were competing in this years spelling bee. Please tell Takeshi CONGRATULATIONS if you see him this week. Linda Li was our Elementary rep. and although she didn't get as far as Takeshi she did a wonderful job competing as one of the youngest in the competition. Please also tell Linda congratulations if you see her this week.
That wraps up the Spelling Bee for this year! Thank you to everyone again for your support for this annual event. It is much appreciated.
