Elementary, Sixth and Middle Grades to Compete in MCS Annual Spelling Bee

Each year students from each MCS elementary school, the Marietta Sixth Grade Academy and the Marietta Middle School compete for an opportunity to represent the school district at the Georgia Association of Educators District 2 spelling competition.

Marietta City Schools (MCS) hosts its annual Spelling Bee at 10 a.m., Friday, Jan. 31, 2014, at the MCS Administrative Offices located at 250 Howard Street in Marietta.

This year, the Cobb County Association of Education (CCAE) will sponsor the event.           

“Students competing in the annual Spelling Bee are often avid readers, and avid readers and writers typically demonstrate stronger spelling skills,” said Jill Sims, Executive Director, Curriculum and Instruction, in a press release.

Each year students from each MCS elementary school, the Marietta Sixth Grade Academy and the Marietta Middle School compete for an opportunity to represent the school district at the Georgia Association of Educators (GAE) District 2 spelling competition.
