It’s bee season at Rosarian Academy. The school’s middle school students recently competed in the school-level of the National Geographic Bee and the National Spelling Bee.

Joseph Coates, an eighth-grader, won the the National Geographic Bee on Jan. 19, along with a chance at a $50,000 college scholarship. The school-level bee, at which students answered oral questions on geography, was the first round in the 30th annual National Geographic Bee.

The school-level competition of the 2018 National Spelling Bee was held Jan. 23. Sixteen fifth- through eighth-grade students competed.

After 23 rounds, fifth-grader Nicholas Grippi won with the word “martingale.” Emma Chopin, also a fifth-grader, was runner-up. Both will represent Rosarian at the Final Regional Southeastern Florida Scripps Spelling Bee on Feb. 12 at The Benjamin School.
