Dear Parents/Guardians of 4th and 5th grade students:
We are pleased to announce that Jeffers Hill Elementary School will participate in the Howard County Library Spelling Bee program again this year.
The school-level Spelling Bee will be held virtually this year. In place of our traditional spelling bee program, we will hold one level of competition through an online spelling test. The school’s winner will advance to the Howard County Library Spelling Bee in the spring. Just think one of our students could be next year’s representative in the NATIONAL Spelling Bee! The Spelling Bee is open to students in grades 4 & 5. Students will receive a study guide so that they can practice for the online test. To be successful, your student is expected to study at home.
If your child would like to participate in the Spelling Bee, please send an email to Mrs. Sanudo no later than Wednesday, December 9, 2020. In the email, please include your student’s name, grade, and homeroom teacher. We hope you will consider this wonderful learning opportunity.
The Reading Team
Renee Sanudo and Robin Barrett
