NCSS Spelling BeeThe Newton County School System will host a virtual district Spelling Bee on Wednesday, January 27, 2020 at 10:30 a.m. Champions from elementary and middle schools in the district will compete in the online competition. Students in grades four through eight were eligible to participate in their school competitions. Should the school champion be unable to participate, the runner-up will serve as alternate and compete in the Bee to represent the school.

“Even in the technology rich world that we live in today, spelling continues to be an important tool because the written word is so powerful,” said Benjamin B. Roundtree, NCSS Chief Academic Officer. “Among other things, the spelling bee supports our students’ learning by enhancing their understanding of vocabulary relative to spelling and by promoting correct word usage. Indeed, spelling bee competitions in our schools continue to be highly anticipated events, and we are happy to continue this venerable tradition.”
