2015-16 Spelling Bee, sponsored by the PTA and Lucy V. Barnsley Elementary School
Attention word-lovers in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades: Barnsley Elementary School will once again participate in the Scripps National Spelling Bee. If you enjoy learning new words and want the chance to represent Barnsley at the Montgomery County Spelling Bee (and maybe even the National Spelling Bee!), then get ready for the classroom bees, which will take place the week of December 7.
The classroom bee will be written - students will be read a list of 40 words, the majority of which will come from the recommended spelling list for the grade, which will be sent home with students. Copies of the word lists for each grade will also available on the PTA website. Students with the highest scores from grades 3, 4, and 5 will be on stage at the school-wide spelling bee in January, with the winner to participate in the Montgomery County Spelling Bee in March.
