3rd Annual Spanish Spelling Bee

On January 28 and 29, GISD students in 4th-8th grade participated in the 3rd annual campus Spanish Spelling Bee competitions. A total of 36 students participated in the campus bees, and the top 3 from each campus will advance to the District Bee, which will be held on Wednesday, February 17.   Due to COVID restrictions prohibiting families from attending, the event was streamed live on the district YouTube channel.  The District Bee will also be available for live viewing. The winner of the District Bee will be invited to participate in the National Bee in Colorado this summer.
