Blogger's Note: The following was provided by the Pottstown School District
The event was held at Pennridge Central Middle School, Perkasie, PA.
Sponsored by CAPS (Council for the Advancement of Public Schools). 60 students entered, with the champion earning a week-long trip to the 2016 Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C.
Amari Folly, an 8th grader from Pottstown Middle School, was 1 of 23 students to make it to the 4th round. She spelled three words correctly prior to being eliminated in the 4th round and finishing 23rd out of 60.
Along with her parents, Chris Petro (Amari's former Math Lab Teacher at Pottstown Middle School) and Kim Petro (Amari's 7th grade Language Arts Teacher at Pottstown Middle School and organizer and announcer for the annual Middle School Spelling Bee) were in attendance to support Amari.
