Albin Mullan is winner of Central Middle School Fifth Annual Spelling Bee

PARSIPPANY — Central Middle School conducted its FIFTH Annual Spelling Bee, on Tuesday, February 26.

Forty-three classroom spelling bee champions from sixth, seventh and eighth grade eagerly competed for the school championship.  Joanne Hirsch, Spelling Bee Coordinator and teacher of English for 40 years in the Parsippany-Troy Hills School District, organized the competition based on the Scripps National Spelling Bee guidelines.

The eloquent and articulate pronouncer was Mr. Joseph Gillespie, Computer Teacher, and the judges were Mrs. Sarah Hare, Reading Specialist and Miss Adrianna Masotti, student teacher with Mrs. Hirsch.  Students had been enthusiastically studying 300 challenging words in preparation for the competition, and after the initial list was exhausted, random words from prior lists were utilized.
