Spelling Bee 





Spicewood Elementary PTA is thrilled to announce our participation in the Scripps National Spelling Bee during the 2019-2020 academic year. All 1st-5th graders have the option of participating.

Please note per the Spelling Bee rules, we will only have one school champion. 




Around 30 Spicewood students put their considerable spelling talents on display in the campus Spelling Bee on January 14th. The competition lasted for 24 rounds over 3 hours, and excitement ramped up as there were several chances for the championship word. Srikar Bandreddy spelt 'Arugula' correctly to win the 2019-2020 Spicewood Spelling Bee, and Anoushka Basu finished as first runner up. Congratulations to them both!
Special thanks go out to our Spelling Bee Chair Herschal Trivedi, who worked incredibly hard getting the program together, Ellen Tuthill, who did a fabulous job as the pronouncer, and our judges Lakshmi and Rebecca. Also a big thank you to our parent volunteers, as well as our Spicewood staff, Ms. Cruz and Mr. Catuogno, who all gave generously of their time in helping us conduct the competition.
