Our 14th Annual Spelling Bee is scheduled for Tuesday, January 26th in the Multiuse Room. All classrooms, grades 3rd through 5th, conduct their classroom ‘bees’ to determine their top 3 spellers. Qualifying spellers advance to our final school competition.
The competition schedule times are as follows:
3rd Graders: 4:00 – 4:30 p.m.
4th Graders: 4:30 – 5:00 p.m.
5th Graders: 5:00 – 5:30 p.m.
Trophies will be awarded to the top three (3) finishers from each grade level. These students will go on to represent Bryant Ranch at the REACH Foundation District Wide Spelling Bee. In addition, our 1st place winners from each grade level will represent Bryant Ranch at the Southern California Spelling Championship.
