It's time for our annual Spelling Bee! We are participating in our 2nd annual Scripps National Spelling Bee competitions. We hold classroom spelling bees and a school spelling bee and the top winner goes onto regionals... (nationals in Washington D.C. is after that for the winner of regionals.
In preparation for the Spelling Bee our 1st-8th graders participate in the Great American SpellCheck! Students learn 50 spelling words and gather pledges for each word spelled correctly. Help us raise money and cheer on our young spellers by pledging toward a student, a class, or a flat school donation.
Pledges can be in the amount of 25 or 50 cents, or $1.00 or $2.00 per word (x 50) or a flat donation.
The Great American SpellCheck will take place on Thursday, January 25 and pledges are collected through February 2.

UNFULFILLED FUND RAISING CONSEQUENCES
- Parents are billed for any unfulfilled fund raising obligations at the end of the school year.
- Grades and diplomas may be held if all financial obligations are not cleared.
- The school may also deny 8th grade students of privileges and graduation in cases where financial obligations are not met.
The school is grateful to all parents who take their financial obligations seriously and meet them in a timely manner. It is imperative that parents who are unable to fulfill these obligations for any reason contact Ms. Essman (323) 664-2131 immediately to discuss the matter.
