Hes-Bee Live Rounds and Spelling List

 The 7th Annual Hes-Bee 

We’re Buzzing with Excitement!  The HesBee (Spelling Bee) has transformed into an evening event….to take place on Thursday, November 30, 2017 at 6:00 p.m.

What’s the HesBee?

The object of the HesBee is to challenge students’ spelling skills, and give them an opportunity to compete in a school-wide event. The HesBee will start with students grouped by grade level.  Spellers will start with grade level words, and then move on to other words from the 450-word list, studying as many words as they choose.

One winner from each grade will advance to the Hes-Bee live round finals.  The winner of the Hes-Bee live round finals will be eligible to advance to the 2017 Los Angeles County Scripps Regional Spelling Bee!  Enclosed is a complete list of Spelling Bee words for grades 1 through 8 provided by the National Spelling Bee, grouped by grade level.  Students can now start preparing for the live rounds.
