Congrats, Claremore Spelling Champs!

Claremore elementary schools recently competed in the beloved tradition of the annual spelling bee. The earliest known evidence of the phrase spelling bee in print dates back to 1850, although an earlier name, spelling match, has been traced back to 1808. The first winner of an official spelling bee was Frank Neuhauser, who won the 1st National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. in 1925 at age eleven.

The winners from each school (grades 2nd – 5th) participated in the City-Wide Spelling Bee on Friday, March 14, at the Robson Performing Center.

The winners of the City-Wide Spelling Bee are:

2nd grade: 1st Gabriella Stinson (Claremont), 2nd Adele Wilson (Westside), 3rd Emily Evans (Catalayah)


3rd grade: 1st Bella Zherebnenko (Westside), 2nd Joshua Fountain (Claremore Christian), 3rd Coda Morgan (Roosa)
