Can you use it in a sentence please? What is the origin of the word? Can I have the definition? This month Brent is all a buzz with the sounds of a spelling bee! It all starts with classroom-level competitions that will be held on Thursday, January 21st for grades 3, 4 and 5. The top four spellers from each classroom will then represent their class in the Brent School Spelling Bee on Tuesday, January 26th at 10:00 a.m. The school’s top three spellers will then advance to represent Brent in the Cluster Competitions, where they will compete with students from other schools to qualify for the city-wide competition. Please note that the rules state that only students in grades 4 and up are eligible for the Cluster Competition, so our school bee will serve as a practice round for Grade 3 students in order for them to become even more competitive next year. Students have already received their spelling word study lists, so we encourage parents to help them review the words at home. More information and study tips will be provided later.
