Fourth and Fifth Graders, at Beeman School, recently participated in the Bananagrams Challenge. The fourth grade champion was Isaiah Francis from Mrs. Alexander’s room and the fifth grade champion was Michael Francis, from Ms. Amadon’s homeroom. Yes, they are brothers! The other fifth grade champions were; Gianna Allen from Mrs. Lafata’s homeroom (only girl in the finals) and Brady Sullivan from Ms. Wentzell’s homeroom. It should be noted the fifth grader, Trinity O’Leary was the only one to get Bananas that day! Michael and Isaiah were set to challenge each other for Top Banana but Michael was sick on match day. Luckily his friend and classmate, Brady Sullivan, offered to step in and play for Michael. In the end Brady won for Michael by one tile! It was an intense game to say the least. Michael now moves on to the next stage of the challenge and will compete against other Banagram Champions to become the ultimate Best of the Bunch.
