Parents of 3rd, 4th, and 5th Graders

The annual Spelling Bee will take place on Wednesday, December 18th at 4:30PM. In order to qualify for the bee, there will be a Grade Level Bee during recess on Tuesday, November 19th. This bee will include students writing 20 words on a piece of paper, not an oral bee. Students must sign up in their classroom to be in the qualifying Grade Level Bee. Eight students from each grade level will be invited to participate in the school-wide Spelling Bee in December. A spelling bee word list will be sent out in the next Tuesday folder but remember, that every word in the dictionary is eligible.
