Written Spelling Bee Finalists Announced
Silver Oak is participating in its 13th annual Scripps National Spelling Bee. The competition consists of written and oral Spelling Bees administered at Silver Oak. The top 20 finalists from the written test continue to the Oral Spelling Bee on Wednesday, January 16th, 6:00pm, in the Silver Oak Multipurpose Room.
On Wednesday, January 9, the written Spelling Bee was administered in school to all students in grades 4 though 6. The top 20 scorers overall listed below have advanced to the Oral Spelling Bee!
There is a slightly new structure this year for the Scripps Spelling Bee program following our contest. The Silver Oak School Champion from our Oral Spelling Bee will qualify to compete with other school champions via a local online test administered at Silver Oak in late January.
The top School Champion finishers of the online test (up to 50) will move on to the 2019 Bay Area Regional Spelling Bee at the Amador Theater in Pleasanton, CA on Sunday, February 17th. The champion of the Bay Area Regional Bee will win an expenses-paid trip to the 2019 Scripps National Spelling Bee in National Harbor, Maryland.
Congratulations to the 20 Silver Oak Spelling Bee Finalists!
