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 Tuesday, January 7th, 2020 (in Language Arts for middle school). A study sheet of words is attached.  Students will need to study the words on the study sheet for the Class Bee. Difficulty Level Two for elementary and Difficulty Level Three for Middle School. 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. This year I have included the School Spelling Bee List that is for the school bee-so that if your student wants to start to study for the school bee he/she can.
  2. The winner of each class will move on to the school spelling bee that will be held at 9:30 on Monday January 13th, 2020 in the Media Center. (again the study list is already provided)
  3. The winner of the River Mill Spelling Bee will advance to the Times-News Spelling Bee on February 6th, 2020 at 4pm at the Paramount Theater, Burlington.

The winner of the Times-News Spelling Bee will advance to the National Spelling Bee in Washington DC in May 2020, with all expenses paid for the winner and one parent
