Principal’s Place 
Dear Parents,

Congratulations to the winners of our school Spelling Bee. The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners from each from3rd, 4th, and 5th vied for the school championship. At a school like ours, the competition is usually very fierce. That was certainly the case again this year. Hats off to these three students and the other contestants for a job well done:

1st Place: Evelyn Carpenter from Mrs. McLamb’s 3rd Grade Class
2nd Place: Kacey Chapman from Ms. Wood’s 4th Grade Class
3rd Place: Lauren Carlisle from Mrs. William’s 4th Grade Class

Evelyn will advance to the HISD Competition on February 18 at Johnston Middle School. What most parents don’t know is that the Spelling Bee competition is for students in 3rd through 8th grade. Evelyn will compete against other elementary students and middle school students as she represents West U. It is a daunting challenge but we know she is up to it!

A big “Well done!” to all those who competed at last week’s school championship.

Have a remarkable week!

John T. Threet, Principal

PTO President
