HB Spanish Spelling Bee

The Spanish spelling bee is a countywide competition. The purpose is to have fun, celebrate accomplishments, reinforce basic vocabulary, learn to spell aloud and reinforce the phonetic system in Spanish. First, students participate in a classroom competition, and the two students who can spell the most words correctly represent their class in the school competition. Then, with eight students from each grade participating, the winners of each grade compete for the chance to go to the county competition. Only two invitations are given each year. Finally, from each student who wins per grade (three total), the two who can spell the most words represent our school. This year’s Spelling Bee county competition will be held at Sardis Elementary on April 28th.
