Scripps Spelling Bee
Every year, students from all walks of life have the opportunity to participate in the Scripps National Spelling Bee, one of the nation's oldest and most iconic competitions. They progress from classroom to cafeteria, from auditorium to civic center, delighting friends, family, sponsors and fans, just as millions of other students have done before them.
The fifth grade students at CIS take part in this exciting challenge. Each year spelling bees are first held in the classroom. The classroom winners proceed to the School-Wide Spelling Bee. First and second place winners are chosen. The first place winner represents CIS in the Regional Spelling Bee in February, 2018 in Hammond, LA.
Last year the student representing CIS won second place in regionals. Our school winners this year are first place winner, Annalyn D. and second place winner, Audie G. Congratulations and best of luck to both of the contestants.
