Today, February 12th, the 2011 Cape Breton Regional Spelling Bee was held at Cape Breton University in Sydney. Three homeschoolers participated (one was my son). Homeschooler Paryse Broussard of Port Hawkesbury was the winner. Congratulations to Paryse and her family! (You may remember Paryse’s sister, Claudine, who won both the 2009 and 2010 Regional Spelling Bees). Paryse will go on to compete in the Postmedia Canspell National Spelling Bee in Toronto on March 27th. 21 finalists from across Canada will compete there for the Canspell Cup, $15,000 in education awards and the chance to go on to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. in June. You will be able to watch at home on CBC TV!
Love, Luck &
