Spelling Bee Time

This year’s Grade 3-5 Spelling Bee will take place on Thursday 10th, May! Yay!

Please encourage your child to be a risk taker and try out.

Two representatives will be chosen from each class and those two will face off with the representatives from the other class.  Then, two will be chosen to represent 3rd grade in the finals.

The spelling words, vocabulary list and spelling bee rules will be in the 3rd Grade Google Classroom. Please download them and begin to practice with your child.

Have a great spring break!!!!
