Spelling Bee event dates:
STUDY WORD LISTS & SPELLING BEE ROUNDS:
Most commonly asked question: Do I need to study all 450 words even though this is a Middle School Spelling Bee?
Answer: Yes! And, you should study the 100 challenge words in case extended rounds of competition using challenging words are necessary to determine our overall winner.
REGIONAL SCRIPPS BEE: As part of the Scripps National Spelling Bee program, the CKMS School Champion will advance to compete in the Regional Bee at Seattle Town Hall on Sunday, MARCH 19th.
Interested in Volunteering? This is a PTSA sponsored event staffed by Parent Volunteers. We will need volunteers to help judge spelling accuracy and/or pronounce words. If you can help, please contact Kimberley Lobet or Renee Christensen.
