    What an amazing Bee!

    Forty-four of Centennial's top spellers bravely competed in a stressful situation, and gave it their best effort. The bee went sixteen tough rounds.

    Here are the results- Our younger students held their own even though a 5th grader and a 4th grader were in the top two spots at the end.

    Here are the results- 

    1st Place: Khadro H- 5th grade

    2nd Place: Khalid H - 4th grade

    3rd Place: José M - 5th grade
