Countdown to District Spelling Bee

Countdown to DCSS District Spelling Bee
Posted on 01/20/2023
The district’s top spellers hope to spell their way to success next week. To prepare, they’ve been putting their spelling skills to the test at home and with their peers. 

After intense spelling bee competitions at their schools, the talented spellers are ready to take their skills to the next level. Next week, the elementary and middle school students from across the district will compete for the title of Douglas County's top speller.

Spelling bees, which first became widespread in the 1800s, promote the love of language and vocabulary. During the competitions, spellers learn concepts and gain valuable skills. Not only do DCSS students engage in friendly competition, but they also gain a deeper understanding of the skills vital to reading and writing. DCSS Spelling Bee Participant
