Children’s Aid Holds a Division Wide Word Bee
Earlier in May, over 20 young people from our community centers gathered at the East Harlem Center to compete in the division wide Word Bee. Our kids prepared over the course of the entire academic year, diligently learning the words, their definitions and their parts of speech. All finalists in the Word Bee had previously won their first rounds of center-based competitions, and were excited to defend their titles surrounded by their peers and families. Our youth shined in not only their mastery of the words, but also their sportsmanship. It was truly a wonderful event, and all of the participants should be congratulated and celebrated for their hard work.
