    Tristan Simmons (2nd place) Ashton Javine (1st place) Another EMS Spelling Bee is in the books! While all the spellers did an excellent job today, please congratulate our winner, Ashton (pictured right), and 2nd place speller, Tristan. It was a tough competition to see who would spell their way to the top! Ashton will advance to the Tuscaloosa County Spelling Bee on February 7.

    The winning word: flambeau

    And another huge thank you to Mr. Turner and Mrs. Perry for acting as our judges this morning.
