| May 1, 2015

First- and second-graders had an opportunity this spring to participate in grade-level spelling bee events designed to show them how important and fun spelling is!

First Grade Informal Spelling Event

First-graders participated in an informal spelling event in their classrooms on May 1. Each child had the opportunity to spell words they have already learned during the school year. All students received a certificate for participating in the spelling event. The goal was for each child to experience the process of being in a Spelling Bee, which is a more formal event when children reach second grade.

Second Grade Spelling Bee

Each second grade classroom held a classroom Spelling Bee on April 17. The winners from each classroom then participated in a school wide Spelling Bee on April 29 for second graders only. The winner of the Second Grade School Wide Spelling Bee was Lizzie Lewis followed by Abby Marriner in second place. Lizzie received a trophy while Abby received a gift certificate to Barnes and Noble.

Great job everyone!
