Spelling Bee

Friday, January 10: Alaka`i O Kaua`i Spelling Bee

We are holding the Alaka‘i O Kaua‘i Spelling Bee for grades 4-6 on Friday, January 10, at 11:30 a.m. in our gymnasium.

The top speller from our school will receive a free one-year subscription to Britannica Kids!

The Alaka‘i O Kaua‘i Spelling Bee will include only spelling, not vocabulary.

This spelling bee is open to all of our learners in grades 4-6 since they are the ones who can advance to the district bees with the potential of ultimately going to the state spelling bee and finally the national spelling bee! The top two learners from our school will advance to the Kauai District Bee on January 16 at Chiefess Middle School cafeteria at 6:00 p.m..

Final Local Spelling Bee: Kama’aina Kids Hawaii State Spelling Bee
Location: The New Hope Oahu auditorium at 290 Sand Island Access Road
Date & Time: March 13, 2020, 6:00 p.m.

All district bees will be completed by February 26, 2020.
