Teamwork is the Way to Go in Kindergarten Through Second Grade Spelling Bee


Many students in kindergarten, first and second grade recently participated in a Spelling Bee at school.

This Spelling Bee was done in teams. There were 12 teams of three members each. Each team was given a word, and the team discussed the spelling of the word. One team member wrote the word, another member spelled the word out loud, and the third member erased the word.

Teams who spelled their word correctly made it to the next round.

In the end, Ms. Kari’s first grade team won this fun Spelling Bee. Congratulations!

MT teacher and students

A big congratulations to all of the participants. You exhibited great team work, and we are proud of all of you.

Congratulations to Katelyn and all of our Spelling Bee participants.

Excellent Job to All of Our Spelling Bee Participants!


Congratulations to all of our Spelling Bee participants in grades three through eight. The school’s Spelling Bee was held Tuesday at the Activity Center.

KGUN9 News anchor Guy Acthley graciously served as our pronouncer for the Bee.

It came down to one word – veteran – which fifth grader Katelyn spelled correctly. She will represent our school in the Pima County Spelling Bee on February 21. If she wins the Pima County Spelling Bee, Katelyn will advance to the state Bee. Should Katelyn win that Spelling Bee, she will m0ve on to the national Spelling Bee.

Congratulations Katelyn! We are so proud of you.
