Every year our students participate in the Scripps Spelling Bee to help students improve their spelling, learn concepts, and develop correct English usage that will help them all their lives. First, our school conducts spelling bee contests at the grade level and then the school level. Our grade level winners will be spelling in the school bee on January 13 at 3:30PM in the aviation room.
