The students participate in a school-wide spelling bee every year.
The students diligently study their word list and are excited about the competition.
The Bees have lasted anywhere from 40 minutes to 2 hours. Several times we have had two final spellers battle it out for a while because they both are great spellers!
After students have won, they have gone on to compete in the citywide Baltimore Bee. We have participated in the Baltimore Bee for 6 years and our students have gone on to round 3.
This year’s Bee took place on February 20, 2017!
