Spelling Bee #2 - February 15 at 1:55 PM
SPELLING BEE AUDIENCE ETIQUETTE
At the bee, it is appropriate to acknowledge the students who have prepared for this contest. However, interruptions during the event are a distraction to the speller, pronouncer, and judges. Please follow these simple guidelines as an audience member during the bee.
General Etiquette: No mouthing, calling out of letters, or help in any way may be offered to the spelling bee participants. Spelling participants have studied and worked hard to be a part of this spelling bee. Please extend participants the courtesy of not speaking or distracting them during the competition.
Applause: Silent Applause for the spellers is acceptable at the end of each speller.
Children: Children who are not participating in the bee are asked to sit quietly with their parents or guardian. Young children may have difficulty sitting through a spelling bee. If a young child becomes disruptive, we ask that you please exit the cafeteria as soon as possible.
Cell Phones: We request that cell phones are turned off or placed on silent during the bee. Photos of the event: We ask that during the bee flash photography is not used. If you take photos without a flash during the bee, please take them from your seat in the gym.
Go Red Day in Alief ISD! - Friday, February 24th

Head Lice Reminders
To reduce the number of head lice cases, please remember our Martin mode of dress for hair: long hair (regardless of gender) should be pulled back in a ponytail, bun, or braids.
Please talk to your child(ren) that hats, jackets, brushes, scarves, and hair ties should not be shared between classmates and friends.
