Campeones del Concurso de Deletreo en español

The SAISD World Languages Department conducted its Annual Spanish
Spelling Bee (Concurso Anual de Deletreo en Español) virtually this
year, and three students were named winners at the elementary, middle
and high school levels.

Jimena G. from Maverick ES: elementary school champion
Angie M. from Mark Twain Academy: middle school champion
Paola J. from YWLA: high school champion

“Events like this promote literacy, enrich academic vocabulary and
foster healthy competition,” said Martha L Vasquez, district coordinator
of SAISD World Languages. “Our contestants from more than 30
campuses did not simply rote study their long list of words, they inquired
about their meaning, etymology, and multiple definitions. I am proud to
emphasize that our sponsors, students, and all involved in this event did
not allow the pandemic to become the stumbling block that would make
us cancel the spelling bee this year.”

The World Languages Program and the Dual Language Department
hosted the event, and the winners will represent SAISD at the Region
20 Spanish Spelling Bee in February.
