1st & 2nd grade Spelling Bee


This will be a fun introduction to spelling bees, and is designed to build confidence in our younger students. Please review any classroom weekly spelling lists or the Scripps “All School” Word list linked below – concentrating most on the first 4 columns, which are geared toward younger spellers. *Please note that this is not an official Bee, but rather a fun and friendly event for younger students. All registered students should arrive at 5:15 to allow time for check-in.

All Grade Spelling Bee


We will observe all of the official rules and regulations of the Scripps National Spelling Bee. First and Second Graders can compete in either or both of the Bees – their choice! The word list used in this Bee is appropriately challenging and not available to students to study directly ahead of time. Please review the Scripps “All School” Word List linked below for a comparable list of words. The winner(s) of this Bee will compete to be the top D41 representative to advance to the regional Bee competition. All registered students should arrive at 6:45 to allow time for check-in.

We need 6-8 parent volunteers to assist with registration and guiding students during the event.
Please sign up here if you can assist. Thank you for making the 2019 Spelling Bee happen!
