Spelling Bee

More than 200 students, from 36 elementary schools and 11 middle schools, competed in the Cherry Creek School District Spelling Bee on January 26, 2018. 

During the morning, the students took a vocabulary test, as well as a written spelling test.  From the combined scores of these two exams, 33 students won a spot in the Oral Spelling Bee.  After eleven rounds, we had our champion!
