2021-2022 Spelling Bee Information

It is time to begin preparations for our annual spelling bees! At Toll Gate Middle School, we hold two separate bees, allowing us to move two champions forward in the National Spelling Bee competition. One champion will be determined for Toll Gate Middle School and another for Gateway Academy. This year, we will use the Scripps National Spelling Bee’s online testing platform for the first phase of our spelling bees in the form of an online qualifying test.

The first step to spelling bee participation for your child is registering for the online testing platform by visiting

IMPORTANT NOTE: When you register, you'll be asked to select your child's school.

Gateway homerooms: you must select Gateway Academy.

All other homerooms: select Toll Gate Middle School.

Since we will be holding two separate spelling bees, you must select the schools as listed above to have the appropriate test assigned to your child.

Complete your registration before December 1, 2021.
