Spelling Bee forms are due by Thursday, November 9th. The forms went home yesterday with the wrong distribution date. The date stated was October 3, 2017, but the actual date should have been November 2, 2017. You may turn in the Spelling Bee form any time before Thursday, November 9th. Students will not receive a spelling list to study until the permission slip is turned in. We will not be accepting late forms, so please make sure you turn in the sheet as soon as possible. We are so excited to see who will be representing us in 5th grade.
