While no one knows exactly where the word derives from, the “bee” in “spelling bee” simply means something to the effect of “gathering” or “get together”. On another note, the word “spell” comes from the Proto-Germanic “spellan”, meaning “to tell”. So, a spelling bee would mean to get together to tell information. Our students have been studying and are ready to show up for the competition on January 23, 2015. Please come out to support the students as they participate in the Spelling Bee.
In the situation of inclement weather, the competition will be held on January 30, 2015 at 9:30 A.M.
