Spelling Bee!

The annual McClure Spelling Bee will be held on Friday, January 13th at 9:30.  All interested students should sign up no later than December 30th.  Your family is welcome to attend the bee and should check in to the front office before joining us in the theater.  Please be mindful of the necessity for a silent environment during the bee.  This may not be the place for younger siblings who cannot sit quietly for long periods of time.
 
*New to this year's bee will be one vocabulary round.  This is something new that has been added to the Scripps National Spelling Bee and we have been asked to expose you to this new format.  This round will be low stress and will not cause elimination. It is just to let you see how the new format will work.
 
Links to this year's school bee study materials can be found on Mrs. Burchette's Blog (7th Grade Teacher).
 
All students interested in practicing as a group are welcome to attend study sessions in Mrs. Burchette's room on Wednesday mornings starting at 8:00.  Our first study session will be Wednesday, December 7th.
