Join in on the fun and "Bee" a part of the 4th Annual 4th/5th Grade Broadmeadow Spelling Bee, taking place on Thursday, March 8th from 6:30-8pm in the Performance Center.

4th and 5th graders, in teams of 2-3, will spell and teachers will judge!

ALL teams win PRIZES and the winning team will have the chance to compete against other Needham elementary school teams in the NEF Spelling Bee on Sunday, March 18th!

Students may sign up as a team with students from their grade or request to be assigned a team. Teams compete in rounds against students in their grade. In advance of the Spelling Bee all teams will be given a spelling guide from which the words will be chosen. In each round, all teams will be asked to spell the word on a whiteboard. After time is up, each team will hold up its word for the judges to check spelling. Winners of the 4th & 5th grade rounds will advance to a Championship round. The winning team will go to the NEF Spelling Bee!

Register by Thursday, March 1st. Look for a registration form in your child's backpack in the coming days or download a form by CLICKING HERE! Each student must complete a registration form with a parent signature to participate.
