Spelling Bee Time!

If your child would like to participate in this year’s spelling bee please fill out this Google Form, which is their permission slip to participate. Please submit your permission slip by January 30. The school-wide Spelling Bee takes place on February 3 at 9:30 a.m. in the Media Center. Parents are welcome to attend.

The top speller from Douglas Elementary School will advance to the District Scripps Spelling Bee on February 10, 8:30 a.m. at Ligon Magnet Middle School.  If your child is the District champ, he/she will represent Douglas/Wake County at the state level competition which is in Charlotte on March 5. The final step is the Scripps National Spelling Bee which will be held in Maryland scheduled for the week of Memorial Day 2023

If there are any questions or if there is a parent that would like to learn more about the Spelling Bee and chair the event next year, please email Heather Watts at heatburn@gmail.com.  

Practice words can be found here (beginner) and here (advanced). Good luck, Dragons!
