Spelling Bee 

The School Spelling Bee will be held on Tuesday, December 18th during the school day for grades 3-8. Your student may start practicing now! The attached lists will be the words tested at the school bee. The top students from the spelling bee will be invited to Spelling Club in order to practice for the state competition. The State Spelling Bee will be held on March 16th at Strum Hall on the University of Denver Campus. The words for the state bee do not come from this list. Your child can use to practice words and meaning by derivation. It is a great resource with tips. The State Bee tests both vocabulary and spelling in a first round written test, then finals are spelling orally.

Prepare Your Students for State Testing

Many of our students will participate in state testing this spring. Participation is important because results help students, parents and teachers understand whether students have mastered the content they need to know by the end of the school year to be on track for college and career success. Please help your students prepare to do their very best on these upcoming assessments.

To view the testing letter and related information, please visit
