Special thanks to Ms. Stephanie Que, Upper School Reading Specialist, for making this event possible.
This year, the Scripps National Spelling Bee has developed an online testing platform that will allow Upper School to host a school spelling bee program, whether your children are learning in classrooms or remotely from your homes.
In place of our traditional spelling bee program, we will hold one level of competition through online spelling tests. The first step to spelling bee participation is for you to register for the Scripps National Spelling Bee's online testing platform by visiting https://online-test.spellingbee.com.
I encourage you to watch this video tutorial that will walk you through the registration process: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htXzjpnMijc
Once you have registered, I will be able to assign the appropriate grade-level test to your child. Your child must complete the test on the assigned date and time. The test can be taken on any device with a web browser, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smart phones.
The students from each grade with the highest scores will move on to compete at the schoollevel. This year, our school-level competition will be administered via online testing for the preliminary round. We are hopeful that in January we will be able to do an oral spelling for the finals.
Our school champion will then move on to represent Upper School in the Bergen County regional spelling bee program, which also may include online tests in lieu of in-person spelling bee events.
The first step to spelling bee participation is to register at online-test.spellingbee.com.
Please register at your earliest convenience as I will begin assigning tests to students soon. If you have already registered in the online testing platform for another child, you can log in to your account and add an additional child to that same parent account. There is no need to register a different email address for each child in your household.
Please reach out to me if you have any questions about our school spelling bee program. I look forward to having your child compete to represent our school!
