Bracken Christian School continues to shine in academic excellence. Mercy Wean, James Schroeder, Rachel Ramsey and Christina Janowiak showed their Warrior prowess at the ACSI San Antonio District Spelling Bee for third through eighth graders on January 14th.
James Schroeder not only proved to be the district's best in sixth-grade competitors but went on to beat out all of the other top spellers from 5th through 8th grades to clinch the first place award as “District Spelling Bee Champion”. He will advance to the regional bee in Dallas is for the South-Central region of the country and includes 6 states: Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana on March 4. He will compete against the top four spellers from each district in the region and the winners will advance to nationals.
This is James’ second trip to regionals, and the entire Bracken family is prayerfully anticipating another trip to nationals. A big thank you to Dana Graves and Connie Guercio for working with all of the students who represented Bracken Christian School.
