The best spellers in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 will participate in the 32nd annual district spelling championship at 7 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 14, in the Mraz Center for the Performing Arts at Burnsville High School. (NOTE: The wrong date was included in the printed calendar that was mailed to families in August.)
The 31 participants will be the building co-champions from 13 schools in District 191 along with two students representing St. John the Baptist school in Savage. The event is open to the public.
Students in grades five through eight are now competing in their school spelling bees to see who will be the building champions and move on to the district bee.
Jennifer Bohr, a District 191 instructional coach, is coordinating the district's spelling bee activities.
