Fifth-grader Lexi Schreiber (left photo) correctly spells “detail” to win the annual Peabody-Burns Elementary School spelling bee Wednesday, Jan. 23. Even with several students being ill, 18 fourth- and fifth-graders participated. In the photo above, Lexi is pictured with second-place winner Madelaine Beal and third-place finisher Brooklyn Massey. The girls will represent PBES in the Marion County Spelling Bee, which is planned for 10 a.m. Feb. 6 in the PBES multipurpose room. The public is invited to attend.
