Spell Bowl is an academic club for students in 4th-5th grade that excel in spelling and enjoy spelling challenging words. Any interested 4th-5th-grade student will take a short pretest. The students with the 10 highest scores will be invited to join the club. Spell Bowl meets once a week from 2:30-3:30 beginning at the end of August through the middle of November. We practice a long list of words (approximately 750) for the district competition in November where we compete with other elementary schools. We strive to make this after school club fun while trying to learn an extensive list of challenging words.
