OLS Spelling Bee

Welcome to the OLS Spelling Bee web page!


Congratulations to Mattias in Grade 5 for winning our annual in-house spelling bee! Mattias will compete against winners from 30 CISVA Schools at St. Anthony's School on May 9th. Special congratulations to our Grade winners:  Luka in Grade 4,  Mattias in Grade 5, Cailan in Grade 6, and Saray in Grade 7.

Congratulations to all 24 participants who were brave competitors.

The annual spelling bee starts in January every year with a school spelling bee in April. For the students in Grade 4-7 who are enrolled in this program, a list of words was sent home in January  

Once students have mastered the study lists, they may wish to get ahead on the next level of competition by studying the words in the 2016 Spell It!, which is the Scripps official study source for spelling bee finalists.

This guide can be found at myspellit.com

Weekly practices are Thursdays at recess.   Students should be studying at home for this competition.  Please stay tuned for news posted on this page.
