Classroom Winners Announced

The school has been a little more focused on spelling for the past couple of weeks in preparation for the many spelling bee opportunities. They started with written spelling tests in each of the classrooms. Once a winner was determined from each grade 4-8th grade, their names were added to list of students who would compete in Broken Bow. In addition to the winners from each of the grades, the runners-up were also added to the list of students who would be competing in the oral portion of the spelling bee.

The oral portion of the Arnold Spelling Bee will be held in the Arnold Gymnasium on Tuesday, February 3rd at 1 p.m. The spelling order was randomly determined. Students in grades 4th through 8th grades competed in the local spelling bee which was given orally.

Following the Local Spelling Bee, the top eight spellers advanced to the Custer County Spelling Bee held on February 11th in Broken Bow at the Municipal Building. This was a written test. Winners of that bee will then advance to the State Omaha World Herald Spelling Bee, which is a written and oral test.
