Congratulations to Caleb Phillips

Butts County Schools

Spelling Bee Winner




 Jackson Elementary School is proud to announce that our very own 5th grader, Caleb Phillips, won the BCSS Spelling Bee on February 9, 2017. He completed against students from Daughtry Elementary, Stark Elementary, and Henderson Middle School, but in the end, he remained victorious!


Caleb says that he was nervous, but was also confident. He works hard to achieve his goals, and this is just one more example of how determination, dedication, and commitment pays off. Ms. Sheila Barlow, Principal, states, “JES is known as a school with high academic achievement, a dedicated faculty and staff, and a student body who is second to none. This is just another example of how students, teachers, and parents working together pays off.”


The road to championship has been in the making for several months now. Caleb first competed in a grade level spelling competition where he was selected as one of several participants for the JES Spelling Bee. After competing against 15 other participants, he correctly spelled the word “compatriot” to become our school winner. Dr. Jay Ellis, Learning Support Specialist, says, “We knew Caleb would do well in the BCSS Spelling Bee. He’s a hard worker and is determined to reach his goals. Caleb knew that he had the support of the entire faculty today.”


Caleb states that he will continue to work hard and make his success a priority. He’s excited about winning 1st place today and can’t wait to share this excitement with others. When asked how he feels about the win, he says, “There’s only one word to describe how I’m feeling right now. I feel supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!”
