NATIONAL SPELLING BEE
Saint Jeanne de Lestonnac School participates in the Riverside County Regional Spelling Bee. Students in grades 4-8 study prepared spelling lists and participate in a “round” competition at Saint Jeanne’s. The winner then goes to the next level of local competition.
One student in the region then advances to the National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. by winning a series of spellings as outlined by the local Spelling Bee sponsors. Students who participate have the opportunity to improve their spelling skills, increase their vocabularies, learn concepts, and develop correct English usage.
