Sinanan Wins Floral Park’s Spelling Bee

Floral Park Memorial eighth-grader Jacob Sinanan was named winner of the school’s annual junior high spelling bee on Jan. 12. Jacob defeated fellow eighth-grader Jacqueline Kelly with the word "unscrupulous" in the final round.

All seventh- and eighth-grade English classes held spelling bees and sent the winners to represent them in the school spelling bee. English teacher Theresa Ball serves as the bee coordinator. Jacob moves on to compete against other school champions at Hofstra University on Feb. 5.
