Spelling Bee info. for you buzzzzzy bees!

Assalamu Allaykum everyone!

Hope you are having a restful winter break!

Here’s an important message from Spelling Bee coordinator:


Dear Parents & Students!

This is an important message to students preparing for the spelling bee.

As you know, there will be two spelling bees. One will be held in-class
for all Grade  4 – 8  students mid-January. The study list for the in-class bee is the word list for the student’s grade only.

The top 3 performing students, who are willing to participate, will
advance to the school bee on January 24th. The school bee will be a test of knowledge based on spelling words from all word lists (grades 1-8).

Students who wish to advance to the school bee should start studying the
additional word lists NOW to maximize their study time. : ) 

I hope this clarifies the issue. If you have further questions, please
email Tr. Kherta at:

Jazakum Allahu khayran for your cooperation.

I wish you all a happy and restful remainder of the break.

Tr. Kherta (co-ordinator)
