February is Spelling Bee Month! We are very excited to be hosting our Second Annual Scripps Spelling Bee competition at Alki. Students have already been busy practicing their spelling words (for more words to learn check out Scripps recommended lists to study http://spellingbee.com/get-words).
This year 2nd- 5th grade students have been participating in lunchtime spelling clubs, an after-school club, and working on their words at home. Our grade-level bees will take place in the classrooms this year (a change from last year). Students who have signed up to compete in the bees have received verification emails along with further details regarding grade-level bees. If you did not receive an e-mail and want your student to compete, please email firstname.lastname@example.org now to make sure they get added.
Our All School Spelling Bee will have the second through fifth grade 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners compete at Alki on Thursday, Feb. 16 (8:30 AM) in the cafeteria. We invite you all to come and cheer on our grade-level winners. The overall winner will compete in the Regional Spelling Bee of King and Snohomish County (Town Hall Seattle, Sunday, Mar. 19 (1:00 PM.))
