Seventh grader Demetria Carter finished in fourth place at the Pinal County Spelling Bee out of 62 competing students. Joining her in the competition were fifth grader Hunter Parry and sixth grader Taya Dockum.

All three Mammoth-San Manuel schools gathered a spelling club. Each club then hosted a school bee, and then those winners competed on Jan. 25 in the Mammoth-San Manuel Unified School District Spelling Bee.

Parry won first place, Carter second and Dockum third, all of whom attended the County Bee.

The first alternate was eighth grader Brittney Anaya, seventh grader Elizabeth Gonzalez and fourth grader Star Chavez.

The three M-SM schools are First Avenue Elementary in San Manuel, Mammoth Elementary STEM School and San Manuel Junior High.

Denise Fisher is the District Coordinator.  Ms. Aguirre coached at 1st Ave., Mrs. Messing coached at the STEM, and Fisher coached at the Jr. High.

This is the first time in a long time that there was a spelling bee held at M-SM schools, according to Fisher.
