4th & 5th Grade Spelling Bee

4th & 5th Grade Spelling Bee

See below for details about the district Spelling Bee for 4th-8th grade students! This district-wide opportunity advances our goal to provide more interscholastic academic offerings for our students. 

Through this experience, students will develop self-confidence, communication and public speaking skills, and hone their ability to thrive under pressure. 

Who participates in the spelling bees? This opportunity is open to all District 4th-8th grade students. While we encourage all students to give it a try, there are various roles available for students who may want to support but not compete. 

What is the timeline? Interested students will first compete in a classroom spelling bee, which will be held District-wide during the week of January 15. 

The winners of the classroom competitions will participate in a school-wide spelling bee during the week of January 29. The winners from each school will then participate in a District 65 spelling bee, scheduled for early February. 

The District champion will receive a sponsored trip to Washington, D.C., to compete in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in late May or the Spanish National Spelling Bee in summer 2024. 

How should students prepare for this?
