POSTPONED: Olympia Spelling Bee
St. Paul American School has been invited to attend the Olympia School Hanoi's annual Spelling Bee Invitational. This event will take place at Olympia School Hanoi on Saturday, February 15, 2020, from 0900-1300. We are very excited about the opportunity for our 3rd, 4th, and 5th-grade students to showcase their talent at this event! We will hold internal classroom spelling competitions followed by a school-wide competition to select the six finalists who will represent St. Paul at the Olympia Invitational.
The six students who are selected to represent St. Paul will be chaperoned at the event by Ms. Teri Bishop. Parents are expected to provide transportation to/from Olympia School for their child, and are encouraged to attend the event and support our St. Paul team!
Once again, only six students from SPAS will be permitted to compete in the event. Due to the Tet Holiday Break, this will be the schedule we will follow for students in Grades 3-5:
As we mentioned, teachers will have Spelling Bees in their homerooms on Monday, February 10. The top two finishers in each homeroom will complete the next day in our St. Paul Spelling Bee.
On Tuesday, February 11, the top two students in each classroom grade 3-5 (12 total students) will compete for the title of St. Paul Spelling Bee Winner.
The winning student, as well as the top 5 performers (6 total), will be sent to Olympia School on Saturday, February 15, to compete against the other International Schools' finalists.
Please find the attached flyer and "word list" for more information. Students may study the word list (same for all grades) from now until the scheduled event to help them prepare for the SPELLING BEE.
Additionally, PLEASE NOTE THAT PARENTS WILL HAVE TO PROVIDE TRANSPORTATION FOR THEIR STUDENT. ST. PAUL WILL NOT PROVIDE BUSES FOR THIS EVENT. Students must be present at Olympia School from 8:30-Noon on this day.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me or Ms. Teri for details.
