Middle School Spelling Bee
The Middle School English department hosts a Spelling Bee each year at the end of the second semester. The Spelling Bee is a competition in which contestants are asked to spell a broad selection of words, usually with a varying degree of difficulty. Students take a preliminary spelling test in their English class and the top 6 students from grades 6, 7 and 8 are chosen to participate. The contestants are given a list of words that they can review/student prior to the competition.Students are allowed to misspell one word during the competition, on their second error they are removed from the competition. Typical Spelling Bees can last up to 12-15 rounds of spelling.
