The first annual Spelling Bee was sponsored by our PTA this year. Grades third through fifth participated. Prizes were awarded to our first place winners.
This parent run creativity program lets students explore problem solving and teambuilding. Students form grade-level teams and then work together to solve both team and instant challenges. Teams spend several months in preparation for a spring competition/presentation.
