Rancho Cucamonga Middle School is proud to announce the winner of the 2013-2014 RCMS Spelling Bee, Youssef Adam.
Youssef is a sixth grade student at Rancho Cucamonga Middle School.
The Spelling Bee began in each language arts class, with each student
given a list of 25 challenging words to spell. If the student
correctly spelled at least 20 words, they moved on to the RCMS Spelling
Bee. The RCMS Spelling Bee was held on January 23, with more than
40 students representing their language arts class and grade
level. After many rounds, Youssef was pronounced the RCMS
Spelling Bee winner.
After Youssef won our local bee, he spent his days studying lists of
different word origins, challenging words, and common roots to prepare
for the next level, the Inland Valley Regional Spelling Bee.
Youssef was one of approximately 100 students representing their
respective schools and districts at the Inland Valley Regional Spelling
Bee on March 1. The day of competition was full! He first
competed in three preliminary rounds to qualify for the final bee: oral
spelling, written spelling, and written vocabulary. Youssef did
so well; he qualified for the final bee later that day.
Although Youssef did not win the final bee, we are very proud of his
accomplishments, and look forward to his spelling success as he
continues to attend RCMS. Congratulations, Youssef!
