An International Baccalaureate World Programme School

We’re getting ready for the 2018 Spelling Bee! Students from across America are about to begin a shared journey full of hard work, determination and the opportunity to make memories and friendships that will last a lifetime. Our school’s spelling bee will be held on the following dates:

  • Tuesday, December 11th (MYP)
  • Wednesday, December 12th (3-5)
  • Thursday, December 13th (K-2)
  • Preliminary Classroom Spelling Bee (s): Friday, December 6th (all grades K-5 &MYP,)

We encourage your child or children to study the attached grade level word list in preparation for the spelling bee. Only when they have memorized their current grade level list, please study the next grade level list attached. The additional list may be used only if there is tie or if the students have exhausted all words on the current list.

This is a great opportunity for each student to improve their spelling, reading/writing skills and have fun! The top three (3) winners in each classroom will participate in the grade level spelling bee on the dates listed above. It’s not just about winning words or how far your child advances, it’s about the friendships made and experiences gained. Help your child succeed by sharing your knowledge and your love of words with them – start studying for their bee today!

If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Trammell, Spelling Bee Chair.

Good Luck!
