June 13, 2018— Big Cross fourth-grader Alianya Cuyler did an E-X-C-E-L-L-E-N-T job representing Glens Falls at the WSWHE BOCES Regional Spelling Bee last week!

“Ali is a hard worker,” says teacher Kim Lewis. “In her writing, she always pushes herself to use challenging vocabulary words. When she won the Spelling Bee at Big Cross, she knew that all of her hard work and love of reading, writing, and words had paid off!"

"We're sure this won't be the last time that the region sees Ali Cuyler competing,” Mrs. Lewis added.

Ali outlasted her competitors for several rounds, correctly spelling “recess,” “alligator,” and “removal.”

32 students in grades 4-8 representing 19 school districts competed in the event at Saratoga Springs Maple Avenue Middle School on June 6.
