Submitted by Being Favreau-Start practicing your spelling folks, and get ready for another year of island-wide Spelling Bee. In the past, parents of Port Clements School have organized this popular event. This year, the Port Clements school parents are taking a well-deserved break and have passed on the baton to the parents of Sk’aadgaa Naay School. Thank you Port, for the honour and for all the wonderful work you had done for the Spelling Bee.Since Sk’aadgaa Naay is a tri-language school, the parents are adding a twist to the Spelling Bee this year. The Bee will be done in Haida, English and French. Take your pick; try your skills in one language or all three!Spelling lists (grade 1 to high school) will be available for pick up at all schools starting Friday, March 30. Interested spellers are encouraged to contact either Jennifer (250-559-8837) or Beng (250-559-8378) to register in advance. The Spelling Bee will be held on April 20 at Sk’aadgaa Naay School. Haida and French Spelling Bee preliminaries will commence at 5:30pm; the English Spelling Bee will start at 6:30pm followed by the Haida and French Finals.This Spelling Bee contest is open to adult bees too. Simply pay $10 to enter the contest and get a chance to win cash. A dinner and desert concession is available so “bee cool” and join us for a meal and support all the enthusiastic spellers.
