CCS Annual Spelling Bee


  • Kindergarten will not participate in the spelling bee.

  • Grades 1 and 2 will conduct classroom spelling bees for practice but will not advance to the schoolwide spelling bee. The schoolwide spelling bee will include an acknowledgement of the winners from 1st and 2nd grades.

  • Grades 3-8 will participate in classroom spelling bees with the top 4 winners from each grade advancing to the schoolwide spelling bee.

  • The winner of the schoolwide spelling bee will advance to the The 25th Annual Downeast North Carolina Regional Spelling Bee in Washington, NC. (According to regional spelling bee rules, only fourth graders or above can compete, so if our winner is a third grader he or she will be honored and the runner-up will advance to the regional level.)
