Mark your calendars! On December 8 at 7 p.m., Swansea P.S. will host its 3rd annual Spelling Bee competition! The event will be divided into two parts – a competition for grades 1-3, followed by a Bee for grades 4-8. Participants will be made up of the top two spellers from each class.
Swansea teachers are currently running Classroom Bee’s to determine who their winners. If your child has already been invited to compete on the 8th, you can help your child prepare by using the Canspell 2010 Speller Kit that was sent home last week. This is an exciting event and last year Swansea’s very own Annika Meijer went on to compete in the National Spelling Bee! More details to come…
We are looking for parent volunteers for the evening of the Spelling Bee (6:30-9 p.m.). Specifically we need a photographer who can take pictures at the event, as well as parents who can help hand out the medals and ensure the event runs smoothly. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Jacqueline Foley at Jacqueline@jacquelinefoley.com
