Beginning in October and running weekly until the beginning of December, students in third through sixth grade practiced for the Countywide Spelling Bee. Each week students practiced from a list of words. In early December, the school held a Spelling Bee. Students took turns spelling the words until only four students remained. These students will be going onto the next round which is the written test. The top thirty-five spellers will move on to the next round of the Countywide Spelling Bee.
Statements from students who participated:
“I loved the friendly competition.”
“I was nervous and excited at the same time.”
“I was proud when I won.”
