If that were not enough excitement at Vansville, there was also the first annual Spelling Bee sponsored by the PTA. Students from grades 1 through 5 tested their vocabulary knowledge on May 17. On the day of the spelling bee, students and staff wore black and orange clothing to include everyone in the "buzz." Sixty-eight students participated.
