GCS elementary students and parents of contestants gathered in the gym on Tuesday, February 6 for the GCS School-wide Spelling Bee. Contestants nervously waited in their chairs and approached the microphone and judges to receive their next word challenge. Connor Joyce was our school winner, and Giulia Chitu finished as our runner-up. Jayden went on to compete in the Gaston County Spelling Bee on Wednesday, March 7. He represented GCS very well, and we are thankful to him for his excellent participation in both spelling bees.
