  • Second Place – Max Westervelt, a fifth-grader at Copper Canyon Elementary School
  • Third Place – Jaime Prendiville, a sixth-grader at Desert Springs Preparatory Elementary School

PVSchools is hosting the Maricopa County Regional II Spelling Bee on February 12, which includes Cave Creek Unified School District, Fountain Hills Unified School District, Paradise Valley Unified School District, Scottsdale Unified School District, and Deer Valley Unified School District. At this time, it has not been determined whether the event will be held virtual or in-person at Paradise Valley High School.

Congratulations to all the students who participated in the District Spelling Bee. We wish our four finalists the best of luck at the Maricopa County Regional II Spelling Bee.
