Tewksbury's Top S-P-E-L-L-E-R-S gathered at Tewksbury High School on June 5th and 6th for the annual district-wide Tewksbury Spelling Bee.  Tewksbury Public Library Youth Librarian Noelle Boc moderated the competition along with emcees Krissy Polimeno and Sharon Pierce.  This program was sponsored by the Tewksbury Education Foundation with support in part by a grant from the Tewksbury Cultural Council, a local agency that is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Special thanks to the judges: Town Manager Richard Montuori, Tewksbury Superintendent Chris Malone, Chief of Police Timothy Sheehan, Deputy Fire Chief Al Vasas, Officer Ryser, School Committee Keith Sullivan and High School Student Maeve Moynihan.   We would like to thank the Tewksbury School Staff and Administration who helped us with the selection process of the students.

Kudos to each and every child they did a wonderful job!  Congratulations to all this year’s winners!
