GRADES 3-5 CCA Spelling Bee Competition


    Each building will be holding classroom spelling bees for interested 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students in March before spring break.  Classroom winners will then move on to the individual building spelling bees that will be scheduled between March 20th-April 1st, 2023. 

    Each building champion from 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade will be contestants in the District spelling bee held on April 28th, 2023 from 9:30-11:30 at the Performing Arts Center in the High School located in Tiffin.

    How can interested students prepare?  

    The following is a link that will take you to the spelling lists to study.  There are 3 difficulty levels: 

    • One Bee (for 3rd graders)
    • Two Bee (for 4th and 5th graders)
    • Three Bee (will only be used if all other words have been used and we do not have a winner yet)

    Classroom and building spelling competition words will be pulled from the “School Spelling Bee Study List” found at the beginning of each level.  The District competition words will be pulled from the “Words of the Champions” lists in each category.

    Printed copies are available from the secretary in your school office.  If you have further questions, please contact your building principal.
