Hampstead Academy has been a participating school in the Scripps Spelling Bee for the last five years. Mrs. Huettner, Language Arts teacher in the Upper School, is proud to announce this year’s Upper School champion, Sarah Miller-Bartley, grade 8.  Sarah secured the victory round in the spelling bee by correctly spelling the word “jaundice.” Sarah will be among many students studying the Scripps word lists as well as taking advantage of the many other resources offered on the Scripps Spelling Bee website in order to prepare herself for the state competition in March.
