Celebrating Spellers and Word Lovers!

Announcing Echo Horizon’s 1st–3rd Grade Spelling Bee Club


This January, Echo Horizon is offering the Scripps Spelling Bee Club to our 1st–3rd grade scholars. All of the words from the 2019 School Spelling Bee Study List come from engaging, grade-appropriate books, which allows our students to get to know these words in the context of great stories. To learn more about the Scripps Spelling Bee, visit their website.


We will give Spelling Bee Club students a reading list and they will be required to meet with Mrs. Brown once a week on Thursdays to discuss the books and practice spelling activities. All of the required books will be held in the library for club members only. The books will be available during the school day or for checkout. Students are expected to practice at home as well as at school to prepare for the Bee. We will hold our own spelling bee on Monday, February 25th during lunch. The winner will move on to the Los Angeles Regional Spelling Bee to be held at North Hollywood High School on Saturday, March 9, 2019!
