For the 9th year BFCCPS will be holding a Spelling Bee. The purpose of the National Spelling Bee program is stated as “to help students improve their spelling, increase their vocabularies, learn concepts, and develop correct English usage that will help them all their lives.” This year, all of the words from the 2018 School Spelling Bee Study List will be taken from engaging, grade-appropriate books, allowing your students to get to know these words in the context of great stories.
