The BEF held our annual 5th Grade Spelling Bee at Brookline High School on Sunday, November 19th. This fun and exciting tradition was wonderful as ever! Congratulations to the winner, Lucy Lawson (Baker School), and the runners-up, Miles Hainer (Pierce) and Felix Schwartz (Lincoln)! The winning word was “quintessence“.

Thank you to our generous sponsors, Dr. Sally Roth and Centre Pediatric Associates!

Thank you also to our Pronouncer, Brookline librarian Abbey Stephens; our Judges, Vanessa Trien, Officer Katie McCabe, Sergeant Casey Hatchett, and Bear the Dog!
