Congrats to Amelia!

Amelia, one of our 7th grade students, won Hope Academy’s school-wide spelling bee and has since passed the next level of spelling tests to advance to Regional Spelling Bee on March 27th at St. Kate’s University. The winner of that wins an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C. to compete in the 2018 Scripps National Spelling Bee. Go Amelia!
