PAY CLOSE ATTENTION. THIS YEAR THE SPELLING BEE IS IN A NEW LOCATION AND ALL OF THE WORD LISTS ARE NEW!!!(The email address for Dave Klopfenstein is also new).
The 2014 SDCHE Spelling Bee will be held Friday, January 24, 2014 at Common Ground Church(formerly Realis Community Church), Rapid City at 2 pm. The address of the church is: 201 Main St, Rapid City. If you go to the old church location on South Canyon Road, you will miss the spelling bee. The church is now located in the bottom floor of the Fairmont Creamery Building also known as the “Creamery Mall.” This is just across the street from Armadillos.
The competition will include oral spelling bees for individual grades one through five. Grades six through eight will compete in a separate oral spelling bee. Word lists used for all grades are new and can be obtained from Dave Klopfenstein(firstname.lastname@example.org
Each grade has a list of 100 words provided by the national spelling bee. As in previous years, the spelling bee for a particular grade may progress into the word lists of the higher grades depending on the level of competition.
The word list for the sixth through eighth grade spelling bee is the “2014 Spell-It” which is also available through the national spelling bee. This is the same word list that will be used at the West River Regional Spelling Bee.
Rules for the spelling bees are unchanged and can be sent to you by email along with the word lists. The rules will also be available at the spelling bee.
If the Rapid City School Distric Spelling Bee is held this year, the winners of our 1st through 5th grade spelling bees can compete at this level as long as they live within the Rapid City School District.
The top 4 from our sixth through eighth grade spelling bee can go on to compete at the West River Regional Spelling Bee which will be held this year in Rapid City on Saturday February 15, 2014. The State Spelling Bee will be held Saturday March 22,2014.
