SPELLING BEE

Any students who would like to participate in next week's school-wide spelling bee, must first compete in a class spelling bee. Both classes will compete in class this Wednesday. The top TWO students from each class will compete in the school-wide spelling bee. Students who do not wish to compete are welcome to watch and cheer classmates on.
