May Watts PTA

Congratulations to the May Watts 2017 Spelling Bee Winners

Thank you to all that participated in the May Watts 2017 Spelling Bee. We couldn’t have executed the event without efforts and support of our volunteers and staff members.  ELL Teachers deserve a big kudos for taking up the pronouncer role as pros would have.
