Fisher Elementary third graders in the Extended Learning Program know their vocabulary, having spent time studying frequently misspelled and misused words.

To celebrate their hard work throughout the year and test their spelling ability, the students matched wits in a spelling bee Wednesday morning (May 23) in the Fisher Gym.

Students took turns attempting to spell a wide variety of words, including numerous misused homonyms like “cite”, “sight”, and “site”.

In the end, Sharik Khan was the champion after successfully spelling “business”. Runner-up was Jillian Lang, with Isaac Lopez in third place.

L to R: Jillian Lang (second place), Isaac Lopez (third place), Sharik Khan (first place).
