Dear White Oak Explorers,


We are proud to announce 2019-20 White Oak Elementary School Spelling Bee! We are excited to give our 3rd, 4th & 5th Grade Explorers this opportunity to demonstrate their spelling skills in the tradition of robust academic competition. Please review the spelling bee schedule listed below. 


  • November 20 - Participants will receive study lists to prepare for class spelling bees.
    • All of the words from the 2020 School Spelling Bee Study List will be taken from engaging, grade-appropriate books, allowing students to get to know these words in the context of great stories.
