Registration for the 2024 Floris Spelling Bee is closed!

Do You Hear the Buzz?

 

Did you know the runner-up in last year’s Fairfax County Spelling Bee was a Floris student?

Or that the Fairfax County speller went on to win 2nd place at the National Spelling Bee?

The Floris PTA Spelling Committee has been planning for another successful Spelling Bee program for the 2023-2024 school year, and is proud to offer students an opportunity to exhibit their proficiency in the arts of spelling and vocabulary. The school Spelling Bee Champion will have the opportunity to advance to the Fairfax county regional competition.  The regional winner will advance to the Scripps National Spelling Bee representing Fairfax County.

 

The Floris Elementary Spelling Bee will be held in two rounds:
  • Preliminary Round: Monday, February 12th, at 6:30PM in the Floris cafeteria.
  • Finalists Round: Friday, February 16th, at 5:30PM in the Floris cafeteria.
Registered students will be provided with the School Spelling List. For more details and links to study and practice materials, please visit http://florispta.org/enrichment/spelling-bee/ or www.spellingbee.com.
