Spelling Bee

This year River Mill will be having a school wide Spelling Bee for Fourth through Eighth grade students.

  1. The first event will be a class spelling bee on Thursday, January 17th (in Language Arts for middle school).  Students will need to study the words on the study sheet for the Class Bee that will be sent home. If the students do well in the class bee, it is possible that the teacher will have to move on to the next grade level of words until the class has only one winner and these words may not be on the study sheet.
  2. The winner of each class will receive a packet of all of the study words to practice for the school spelling bee that will be held at 9:30 on Thursday January 31st, 2019.
  3. The winner of the River Mill Spelling Bee will advance to the Times-News Spelling Bee on February 28th at 4pm at the Paramount Theater, Burlington.
  4. The winner of the Times-News Spelling Bee will advance to the National Spelling Bee in Washington DC, with all expenses paid for the winner and one parent.
