Exira-EHK 11th Annual School Spelling Bee Congratulations goes out to the 42 students who participated in the 11th Annual Exira-EHK School Spelling Bee this week. Brooklynn Snider (7th grader) is our Exira-EHK School Spelling Bee Champion. Our runner-up is Aubrey Nelson (6th grader). Our Elementary (grades 1st-3rd) co-winners are RayLeigh Smith, Summer Pedersen and Harper Rasmussen. Brooklynn’s winning word in round 12 was ‘dissolute’. Brooklynn will have the opportunity to compete in Scripps State Spelling on March 18 at Omaha Sports Commission. Big Thank You goes out to the students and parents for raising over $1,300 in this year's Spartan Spelling Bee Fundraiser!!! Our Elementary students in 1st-5th grades received donations from family and friends. We will use the money towards our Elementary Spartan Pride Store and educational programs. Thank you to our judges, Connie Jessen, Jen Petersen and Brenda Hansen and those who helped with the event (Beth Peppers, Lexi Griffin, Connie Jessen, Riann Hansen, Jen Petersen, Shelli Nelson, Courtney Peppers, Brenda Hansen, and teachers). “Congratulations goes out to Brooklynn and all the students who competed in this year's School Spelling Bee!

Mrs. Griffin's Senior English class worked on a careers unit over the past six weeks. Within this unit, students learned about and created their own resumes and cover letters. A human resources professional, Blake Wilkerson, came to speak to the class earlier in the unit regarding resumes, cover letters, and interview etiquette. To conclude the unit, students participated in mock interviews where they were interviewed by employers. We had the pleasure of hosting multiple organizations, that provided constructive feedback to students as they begin to look to life outside of high school. We would like to thank Elite Octane, Menards, the Museum of Danish America, the Danish Windmill, AMVC, Rasmussen Law, Wayne Hansen Real Estate, Camblin Mechanical, Elk Horn Public Pool, and Des Moines Fire Department for providing students with this valuable experience. #EEHKSpartanPride
