The annual Andover Elementary Spelling Bees took place Wednesday, Jan. 13, Thursday, Jan. 14 and Friday, Jan 15. Mrs. Katherine Munsen and Mr. Brett White pronounced the words to the students with several staff members serving in the role of judges for the bees. All of the spellers did a great job, but ultimately the bees came down to one school winner and one runner-up. Our Andover Spelling Bee winners will be representing their elementary at the Butler County Spelling Bee on Feb. 3 at Butler County Community College in El Dorado, Kansas.
