Spelling Bee Registration Closes Friday

FBE Spelling Bee Registration Closes on Friday, October 18th

The FBE Spelling Bee will be held on Saturday, November 2nd, at the Chenery Middle School beginning at 2:00 pm. The Bee is open to all students in grades K-6 and is an exciting event for students, family, and friends.

Spellers participate in three- or four-person teams and are on stage in groups (or swarms) at assigned times. Word lists are already posted on the FBE website, so there is still time to study. Kindergarten through fourth grade swarms are non-competitive. Fifth and sixth grade swarms are competitive, though still team based.

Expected Spelling Times

  • Grades K-2, 2:00 - 4:00 pm
  • Grades 3-4, 4:00 - 6:00 pm
  • Grades 5-6, 6:00 - 8:30 pm


Online registration is available HERE and runs through October 18th. Registration is completed at the individual speller level, but a team name and the names of all team members are required before an individual can register.

*Space for this popular event is likely to sell out. For the last three years, we have had to close registration before the October 18 registration deadline and place teams on a waitlist. Register with your team as soon as possible to secure a spot.


It takes many volunteers to run this event. To learn more about volunteer opportunities at the Bee, please view the volunteer sign-up HERE.

For more information, to register, and to view the word lists, please visit the FBE website at: www.fbe-belmont.org/bee. If you need assistance, please email beemaster@fbe-belmont.org.
