Spelling Bee

The Park Hill School District spelling bee will be Saturday, Feb. 23, 2019, at Park Hill South High School. Park Hill is now sponsoring our own spelling bee, so the winner of the district bee will advance to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Maryland.

Students in fifth through eighth grades may sign up for the spelling bee through a link that will be available on this page until Friday, February 1st. Sign up for one of the hour-long computer-based testing times during the morning of the bee. 

The top 60 students after the computerized exam will advance to the spelling bee at 2 p.m. that afternoon in the auditorium. The top ten finishers will earn medals, and the top three will receive trophies. The winner will receive a trip to the national bee.

We are excited to announce the opportunity for you to attend spelling bee study sessions at 6 p.m. in the Board Room at Park Hill School District Office.  The study sessions will be Wednesdays January 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th, February 13th and 20th and Thursday February 7th.   There is no sign-up necessary, just drop by if you are available. You can stay for five minutes or the whole time, whatever fits into your schedule and you can come to one or all sessions.
