Marietta City Schools (MCS) will host its annual Spelling Bee, Friday, Jan. 25 at 10 a.m. at the MCS Administrative Offices located at 250 Howard Street in Marietta. The Marietta Education Association (MEA) will once again sponsor the event.
“Students competing in the annual Spelling Bee are very often our top readers, and students that are avid readers and writers typically have stronger spelling skills,” said Jill Sims, Executive Director, Curriculum and Instruction.
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.
The objectives of the MCS Spelling Bee are to help students spell quickly and accurately; to promote students’ correct word usage in meaningful activities; to help students learn to compete; and to provide an environment to promote students’ self-esteem, character development, and sportsmanship.
