In the beginning of the year, many of Focus Learning's students disliked spelling and dreaded spelling tests in school and at Focus. In November they demonstrated a HUGE transformation by proudly standing in front of their friends and family to participate in the SPELLING BEE at Focus Learning!
Student's prepared for the spelling bee by practicing in class, at home with their parents, and even during play dates with their friends. Many parents commented on the motivation and dedication they saw in their children while preparing for this competition. Students commented that they enjoyed getting ready for the spelling bee almost as much as they enjoyed competing in the event. One student celebrated his birthday at our spelling bee, and even though he got out on the first round, he explained that he was super excited to come and try his best on his favourite day of the year.
Win or lose, Focus Learning is SO proud of all that their students accomplished by preparing for, and competing in, the Spelling Bee. Special thanks to David Zimmer for preparing an inspirational welcome speech and certificates for the students and parents of Focus Learning!! The aftershcool and weekend learning centre in North York is excited to present monthly competitions, tournaments, and events for all community members. Check out their website for more information.
