May Watts Spelling Bee 

After three successful years, May Watts is enrolled in the Scripps National Spelling Bee 2020 again.

This year, students from Grade 3rd to 5th can enroll for the contest. Interested students will take a 25 word Grade Level Spelling Bee (written) test after school on Tuesday, October 15th, 6:00 PM in the Gym, LMC & Multipurpose room.

The top students from each grade will be invited to participate in the Watts Spelling Bee, to be held on Wednesday, January 29th, 2020 6:00 PM @ GYM

There is no registration charge for the grade level competition. Students advancing to the Watts Spelling Bee would need to pay $5 registration fee. Parents are invited to attend the Wednesday, January 29th, 2020 contest.

Most of the preparatory work for the Bee will need to be done by students in their own time. There are suggested word lists for each grade level. Download from here:

Students should begin by studying the appropriate list(s) for their grade level, and move up from there. These lists are not comprehensive, but they are a good start. Lists will be shared with the registered parents via email.
