Spelling Bee

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Our school is excited to offer students in grades 3-5 a chance to participate in the fifth annual Arthur M. Judd Elementary School Spelling Bee. The first round of competition will take place in your child’s classroom on or before January 23, 2020. The final competition will be held in school on Tuesday, January 28th, with a snow date of Wednesday, Feb. 5th. You will be notified with more information if your child will be participating in the finals.

Students have lists from their teachers to use for practice. For additional information please feel free to visit spellingbee.com. You’ll find access to study tips and the Word Club, an app that can be used for practice. Please note the app is free, but you can purchase BeeCoins for more access.

The final Judd School winner wins a free one-year subscription to Britannica Online for Kids and advances to the next level of competition. He or she will compete in the Final Local Spelling Bee at Monmouth University on March 16th and 17th, 2020. More information to follow for the winner.

If you have any additional questions, please contact Mrs. Alderman at dalderman@nbtschools.org. Practice spelling words were shared with your child, but additional copies are available here.
