Gifted and Talented Programming
The Cherry Creek School District held its annual Spelling Bee on Friday, February 7th. Each of the 46 participating elementary and middle schools had its own school bee in preparation for this day, allowing thousands of students to participate in the process before each school's team was selected.
DaiAn Jiang, from Campus Middle School, is our district spelling bee champion. Second place went to Amber Kou from Dry Creek Elementary. Third place was awarded to Austen Mazenko, also from Campus. There was a tie for winners of the morning written test between DaiAn Jiang and Riley Somo from Laredo Middle School.
