CCC Spelling Bee
Welcome to our 17th annual Central California Conference Spelling Bee!
The Spelling Bee contest will emphasize the need to be a competent speller. Not all writing is done via the computer; therefore, accuracy in spelling is an important part of an individual’s overall educational experience. It is a skill that will have lifelong repercussions and will empower students to be more competitive in the workplace as well as enrich the lives of productive citizens.
Every elementary school in the Central California Conference is welcome to participate. Every student in the third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth grades is encouraged to get involved in the local rounds. We would urge teachers to make these local rounds fun, stress free, and tools for learning. Students participating will be from grades 3-8, one student from each grade (six students from each participating school). There may be an alternate from each grade at the local school level if the local grade representative is unable to attend the Spelling Bee. Every team must have a certificated teacher to coach and guide the team. This individual will accompany the team to the final phase of the competition.
The Spelling Bee will be held at location to be determined. The event is scheduled for Thursday, March 9, 2017. The Spelling Bee will start at 9:00 a.m. and conclude by 2:00 p.m.
The Spelling Bee handbook will be sent to regestered schools.
