The GFWC Coral Gables Woman’s Club once again opened its clubhouse doors to the Independent Schools of South Florida (ISSF) for the organization’s annual spelling bee on Nov. 8.
With a total of 23 schools participating in this 2012 ISSF Fifth Grade Spelling Bee, an unprecedented eight schools placed this year. Three schools placed third; two came in second, and three schools placed first. In fact, only four points separated the third and first place schools and all are to be congratulated from the students to the coaches.
And the top finishers are: first place — Alexander School, St. Agatha and St. Theresa; second place — Gulliver and St. Patrick; third place — Cushman, St. Brendan and Temple Beth Am
