Mr. Jensen, Assistant Principal

Canandaigua Middle School 8th-grader Tyler Friel won the Wayne-Finger Lakes Regional Spelling Bee on Saturday, March 20, 2021!

The Spelling Bee was held in person at the Wayner-Finger Lakes BOCES Conference Center in Newark. Tyler and the other students studied a list of 4,000 words. CMS 6th-grader Stephen Chehata also competed in the Regional Spelling Bee.

Typically, the Spelling Bee winner moves onto compete at the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, DC. However, due to the pandemic, the next round of the Spelling Bee will be virtual. Good luck to Tyler, and Congratulations on being the Regional Spelling Bee Champion!
