FBE Spelling Bee Swarm Times and Event Information

FBE Spelling Bee Swarm Times and Event Information

date 2/2/2023
DAY OF EVENT INFORMATION: Please park in the Chenery Middle School parking lot or neighborhood streets and enter the building through the cafeteria doors facing the parking lot. Spellers can be dropped off in the swarm line-up area hallway and adults can then proceed to the auditorium to watch the Bee. Each K-4 swarm will be escorted onto the stage by an FBE volunteer, spell for approximately 15 minutes, and then be led off the stage as one group. Grade 5-6 swarms are competitive so the amount of time they are on stage will vary. Volunteers will be stationed throughout the building to point spellers and Spelling Bee observers to the right place. Please stop at the FBE Welcome Table should you have any questions or need assistance.
