Gardner Grade School hosted the 2024 school Spelling Bee on Wednesday, January 24th.  After an impressive ten rounds of spelling; a victory was clenched by seventh grader, Makenna Hoeppner.  She edged out eighth grader, Case Christensen, in his third appearance in the GGS Spelling Bee.  It was a competitive battle of letters between the two for several rounds before Hoeppner secured the title.  All of the spellers did a wonderful job representing their classes.  There was a multitude of tough words, but the spellers remained resilient.  The spellers from 6th grade were:  Harrison Deoung, Talon Mack, and Mikayla Vermaat.  From 7th grade representatives were:  Makenna Hoeppner, Autumn Manzello, and Josie Vallera.  Eighth grade was represented by: Caden Christensen, Case Christensen, and Julianna Moats.  GGS is proud of all of the great efforts made in preparation for and during the bee.
