Congrats on completing classroom and school-level bees. HCLS has started receiving school champion registrations. Please continue to use the Scripps Teacher Portal to enter information for winners and alternate spellers by the Feb 13 deadline. On the first form for school winner details, enter the alternate’s name in the indicated field. Then on the second form, enter the alternate’s complete contact information. HCLS will send correspondence to the spellers’ families in the coming weeks. The form to submit BumbleBee winner information can be accessed above by clicking the button for “BumbleBee Winner Form”. Thank you.
*All School Coordinators have access to the 2023 competition lists and Words of the Champions study booklet through Scripp’s Teacher Portal. HCLS is not permitted to distribute this document.
HCLS is in the process of enrolling all participating schools that returned an Intent to Participate form for the 2023 Spelling and Bumble Bees. School Coordinators will receive a confirmation and login information for the Teacher Portal on the Scripps website when this process is complete. Please contact [email protected] for further assistance.
HCLS has completed sponsor registration for the 2023 spelling bee program. HCPSS, private, and home schools will receive an Intent to Participate form and letter from the HCLS Bee Team. All school enrollments will then be submitted to Scripps for processing and school coordinators will be notified and provided with access to Scripps’ teacher portal at Spellingbee.com for classroom and school bee resources. Due to the generous support of our sponsors, there is no cost to schools to participate. Thank you.
