  • SPELLING BEE INFORMATION All students in Grades 4-7 are invited to participate in this year's Star of the Sea School Spelling Bee. This year there will be 2 lunch hour meetings the week before the Spelling Bee on Tuesday, March 3rd and Thursday, March 5th. At these meetings we will review expectations and the process. Students are expected to study the words at home. Click the link below for a copy of the student study word list. Once students have mastered the study list, they may get a head start on the next level of competition by studying the words in Spell It, which is the Scripts official study source for Bee finalists. This guide can be found online at http://myspellit.com/ The in-school Spelling Bee will take place on Tuesday, March 10 and the winner will advance to CISVA's Spelling Bee on Tuesday, April 28 (location TBA).

Only students who have permission slips handed in will be able to participate.
