Weller Spelling Bee Info
DEAR WELLER PARENTS & STUDENTS,
UPDATE- Due to computer issues the spelling bee is unable to take place. I am very sorry for any undue stress this may cause your student. Im happy to speak to students about ways to study for next years competition.
Due to our current circumstances we will be having an online Spelling Bee this school year. It will take place through the Scripps National Spelling Bee Online Testing Platform. Interested students will receive a “study list”. The school Bee will take place online Thursday, Feb. 18th.
In October, the Bee launched a new online testing platform for enrolled schools and local sponsors. The online testing platform gives coordinators maximum flexibility in the administration of school spelling bee programs.
The online testing platform will enable bee coordinators to:
- Specify an all-spelling test, an all-vocabulary test or a combination.
- Select the type of spelling questions: multiple-choice or type-in.
- Specify whether they want all studied words (words found on our 2021 study lists) or a combination of studied words and additional, “unstudied” words.
- Specify a time limit for the test, if desired.
- Specify the number of students advancing to the next level of competition.
- Set start and end dates for when the test is available to students.
• Determine if they want students to receive instant results showing the number of correct responses
If you have questions please email me,
