Phonetic Fun! CCSD's 2011 Spelling Bee
Congratulations to the district's top Spelling Bee winner, fifth grader Dominick Gibbs from Mt. Zion Elementary, who spelled “tortilla” for the win.
Thank you to everyone who participated in and contributed to the Charleston County School District's (CCSD) 2011 District Spelling Bee on Wednesday, January 26, in the Board Room at 75 Calhoun Street.
This year, 42 school champions in grades 5- 8 from 27 elementary and 15 middle schools competed for the top eighteen spots. These top spellers will advance to the Post & Courier's regional "SpellBound! Spelling Bee" competition on March 14. The winner of that event will travel to Washington D.C. in June to participate in the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
