ACSI Spelling Bee

Enlightium Academy (EA) is partnering with the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) to provide students with the opportunity to compete in a spelling bee with other EA students, as well as students from other schools. The ACSI Spelling Bee is not an exercise in memorization, but in spelling abilities.

There will be two rounds for the 2018–19 school year:

  • Round 1
    • These will be remote sessions by grade level, so that students can compete against each other from the comfort of their homes. The top 3 performers from each grade level can compete in round 2
    • 3rd grade - Wednesday, November 7th
    • 4th grade - Thursday, November 8th
    • 5th grade - Friday, November 9th
    • 6th grade - Wednesday, November 14th
    • 7th grade - Thursday, November 15th
    • 8th grade - Friday, November 16th
    • Prek–2 and 9–12 will not have a Spelling Bee during the 2018–19 school year
  • Round 2
    • This event will be held against other schools as part of the ACSI competition. The location has yet to be determined. Only the top 3 performers from each grade level can compete in round 2
