Unit 2.8.46

Registration is now closed.


      The online enrollment will start November 11th. The suggested donation is $15, with checks to be made out to "Redmond El PTSA" and given to the office or to the student's teacher. The fee covers enrollment, a participation certificate, and entry into the Final School Spelling Bee provided that the student qualifies by first passing the Written Round Test. After the enrollment the students will receive a word list for preparation. The school winner will represent the school for the Regionals in Seattle on March 19th.


We need volunteers to help us during the following dates.  Please consider signing up here!

  • Jan. 18th, 2017 - Written Round – Prelims
  • Feb. 10th, 2017 – Mock Spelling Bee!
  • Mar. 4th, 2017 - Final School Spelling Bee!

        Spelling Bee is a great way for students to expand their word knowledge and learn how to stand up in front of peers and compete in a friendly way.


After you register:

  • Please download the word and vocabulary list and start preparing.
  • The Word and Vocabulary List (450 words) will be used for the school spelling bee.
  • The prelims will be a written round and we expect the kids to know the meaning of all the words. It will be a multiple choice test along with 5 words given to spell.
  • There is also a Spell It 2017 List that has more than a 1000 words. It is recommended to review this list as some words from this guide will be used in the final school bee if we exhaust the list of 450 words. 
  • The Spell It 2017 list will also be useful to the School winner, who will be participating in the regional competition.
  • If you have registered you will be receiving practice materials for written and final bee through email. The written round pattern will also be emailed to your email used to register on this site.
  • Please use http://www.merriam-webster.com/ to hear the pronunciation of each and every word. It also has details about the origin of the word, examples, alternate pronunciation and meaning. This website is recommend by Scripps for pronunciation. The Pronouncer would use this site as the standard for both, final school spelling bee and the regionals.
