Registered students should study the study list in their free time ASAP. Students only need to spell the word. Vocabulary is just to help students understand the word.

By reading the books, students can gain a deeper understanding of the School Spelling Bee Study List by finding the 450 words within the stories.
  • This year, we will NOT be having an in person practice session. Students must study these words at home.
  • The online School Spelling Bee will include some words that appear on the study list, however, spelling bee words are not limited to the study list and students will be presented with words that are not on any study list. Words will be presented in random order.
