Wetzel County Schools Marks Spelling Bee
The Wetzel County Spelling Bee was held at Paden City Elementary on April 18. Representatives from all four elementary/middle schools were in attendance.
Students who made it to the county bee had to cross several hurdles before making it to the county level. Students had to place first, second, or third in their class bee to make it to the school bee. Then students had to place first, second, or third in their respective school’s spelling bee to make it to the county level.
