District 69 is participating for the FIRST time in the Scripps National Spelling Bee! The Scripps National Spelling Bee is an educational promotion sponsored by the E.W. Scripps Company in conjunction with sponsoring newspapers and organizations around the world. Its purpose is to help students improve their spelling, increase their vocabulary, learn concepts, and develop correct English usage that will help them all of their lives.
Our 2012 District 69 Spelling Bee will be held at the Petty Auditorium in the Skokie Public Library on January 26, 2012, from 3:00-4:30. Finalists from each grade level will compete at the District Bee and our top speller will advance to the 2nd Annual North Cook ISC Scripps Spelling Bee on Wednesday, February 8, 2012.
We hope to see you all at the District Bee on January 26th to support our w-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l spellers!
