Martin Luther Spelling and Math champions

Martin Luther School (MLS) recently crowned Spelling Bee and Mathematics Challenge champions in the inaugural Academic Challenge for students in grades three through eight.

The first- and second-place finishers in each category will received either a scholarship to Martin Luther School’s Middle or High School program or a U.S. Savings Bond.
