Otis Elementary School
The fourth annual Alameda Spelling Bee held at Otis Elementary School Feb. 2, saw last year’s third place finisher, Ella Banchieri, take the honor as the Island’s top speller for 2019. She and second-place finisher Elena Morishige dueled through spelling increasingly difficult words.
Two fourth-grade classrooms at Otis Elementary School have agreed to take part in The Bioma Project. “Developed by students for students,” the project was created in Maryland by several high school students who decided to help develop the next generation of environmental leaders.
Otis Elementary School, 3010 Fillmore St., will play host to the sixth annual Alameda Bike Festival & Rodeo set for Sunday, May 19, from noon to 3 p.m. Everyone is invited to this family friendly event with the goal to inspire, educate and encourage bicycle riding.
