Skyview Middle School PTSA Spelling Bee

Wednesday, January 25, 2023

Congratulations to the 39 Skyview Middle School students who participated in the Skyview Middle School PTSA Spelling Bee. The Bee went 14 rounds and finished with a championship word of "extraneous"! All students came prepared to win the Bee and gave 100 percent effort. 

We are so thrilled to announce our top three:
1st place: Cheransai Koppula, 8th Grade
2nd place: Videep Mannava, 7th Grade
3rd place: Amelia Siddiqui, 7th Grade

Cheransai Koppula will continue onto the next round in the Regional Spelling Bee of King and Snohomish County on March 26 - please wish him luck if you see him around school!

So many thanks are due for an event like this. First, thank you to our amazing Skyview Middle School teachers, Ms. Ernster and Ms. Maleki for moderating the Bee. Much appreciation to our principal, Mr. Wallace, for supporting the event and watching the entire Bee.

These events would not be possible without the generosity and support of our families supporting Skyview Middle School PTSA. It is only through membership and donations that we can host an event like this. THANK YOU PTSA MEMBERSHIP.

Thanks to our PTSA President, Jake Tadema, and Mumtaz Zimbalist for scorekeeping the event and to our chair, Melanie McKenzie. Bravo to all and congrats to all spellers!
